Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the (new) shortest man to the longest fingernails, from the smallest bird to the largest gathering of Smurfs—if a world record has been created or surpassed, it’s here!

 

Guinness World Records™ 2011 gathers the most amazing, inspiring, and wild record breakers yet. Filled with don’t-try-this-at-home human achievements, natural and technological wonders, incredible feats in sports and entertainment, and much more, this fully updated edition introduces thrilling new records and incredible facts that will fascinate young and old alike. Did you know . . .

 

• The most tattooed senior citizen is Tom Leppard (U.K.), who at seventy-four years of age has 99.9 percent of his body covered?

• Afghanistan now shares with Iraq the record as the most land-mined country in the world, with an estimated total of ten million mines each?

• The big-eared fennec fox has a novel way of cooling down in its Saharan home? When the temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the fox loses heat by panting at a rapid rate of 690 breaths per minute.

And that’s just a hint of what you’ll find inside this addictive book, including new photos and spreads on TV’s diamond anniversary (75 years of record-breaking shows), pop culture (including 3-D films), and Mr. World Record Breaker Ashrita Furman—plus fun quiz questions that will put your skills to the test.
