How was Guinness Book of Records started? It all happened in May 1951. Sir Hugh Beaver, then the managing director of the Guinness Breweries, was involved in an argument on a party in a bar. The argument was about which was the fastest bird in Europe. Sir Beaver realized that there was no book which allowed settling arguments about records, and he thought that a book of this kind might become popular.

The first 197-page edition of The Guinness Book of Records was published on August 27, 1955. It quickly flew to the top of the British bestseller lists by Christmas. Since then about 400 million Guinness World Record copies were published. The most recent one is scheduled to be released in 2011. Let’s see what world records it will show.

Don’t forget to look the video.

Greeting to you George!

Here’s a list of the most unique world records recognised internationally, both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.
Until 2000, the Guinness World Records was known as the Guinness Book of Records and it is the best-selling copyrighted series of all-time.
The interesting fact is that it is one of the most stolen books from public libraries in the United States.

Garry Turner, of Caistor, Lincolnshire, England, stretched the skin of his stomach to a distended length of 15.8 cm (6.25 in) on the set of Guinness World Records: Primetime in Los Angeles, California, USA, on October 29, 1999.
