Big Snow, the largest chicken on record, weighed 23 pounds, 3 ounces. Sheena, a barnyard bantam, flew 630 feet, 2 inches for the longest known chicken flight. And at 25 years, Wil Cwac Cwac of Wales holds the title for world's oldest duck. It's astounding how much time one can waste with the Guinness Book of World Records, and how genuinely absorbing hitherto overlooked questions of trivia can be. Guinness covers more than paltry poultry profiles. The 1998 edition contains more than 10,000 records of hobbies and transportation, technology and humanity, sports, arts, commerce, and nature. Curious about the biggest severance check ($58.8 million), the longest snake (a 32-foot, 9.5-inch python), the greatest distance cycled in one calendar year (75,065 miles), or the most prolific mother (a Russian mom who gave birth to 69 children from 1725 to 1765)? Want to beat the record for heaviest ice-cream sandwich (you'll have to top 830 pounds) or most expensive wedding (the 1981 nuptials of Mohammed and Princess Salama in Dubai cost $44 million)? Whether you seek specific facts to back up an essay or support an argument, need backseat entertainment for cross-country car trips and squirrelly passengers, or wish to browse eclectic facts whilst seated on the throne, the Guinness Book of World Records is a ceaseless source of interest and diversion. --Stephanie Gold

Not only is this little gem now on the best-seller list, it's also handy to have around to settle arguments - a bargain too. Keep in mind, a new edition comes out every year. In case you're using it to settle an argument, you'd better know the year you're arguing about.
Brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, managing director of Guinness Brewing in 1951, the book is a worldwide success. Published in 77 different countries, 38 different languages. The 1994 edition sold over 100 million copies. It's published by a host of editors and writers who strive mightily for accuracy. You are challenged to beat a record in the current edition of the book and the back pages tell you how to go about it. The editors are very upfront in their advice: "We are a very small editorial team, and receive hundreds of letters every week. "Please submit your request at least two months before your attempt so that we can give your inquiry the attention it deserves." As for the records themselves.., they cover almost every human activity and make for fascinating reading anytime, anywhere. Some samples...
CASSEROLE OF ETERNAL LEFTOVERS: The world's largest delicacy is roasted whole camel, a Bedouin wedding dish with eggs stuffed into the fish, the fish stuffed into cooked chickens, and the chickens stuffed into a roasted sheep's carcass and the sheep's carcass stuffed into a whole camel.
LARGEST MULTIPLE-MIRROR TELESCOPE: The MMT (multiple-mirror telescope) at the Whipple Observatory at Mount Hopkins, Arizona uses six 72-inch mirrors together, giving a 1ight-grasp equal to a single 176-inch mirror.
MOST BORDER CROSSINGS: The most frequently crossed frontier is the border between the United States and Mexico, with over 500 million crossings each year.
MOST FREQUENTLY SUNG SONGS: in English are, in order, 'Happy Birthday to You" (1893); "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" (1781); "AuId Lang Syne" (1759).

Not entirely satisfactory. Needs more salt at the last minute to really bring the taste out. I Tried the '97 edition on a bed of shallots with a red current jus but it too let me down when the guests turned up. Still, not worth worrying about now is it?
Personally I'd recommend hanging in for the 2000 edition as it's bound to be more meaty, with soft subtle fruit flavors penetrating right through the flesh. I'm looking forward to trying in with a nice glass of d'Yquem '58 and pins in my eyes.

The World Records in this book are sometimes only a paragraph long.Get the 1999 edition or watch the show every Tuesday,Saturday and Sunday night.My favorit record on the show was were the yogi fit into a tiny box and was submerjed in water in it for six minuits!However it was on tv live one night.The first record was the longest a person was set on fire without oxygen which was a little more than I minuit and tightrope walking with a blindfold on.

Canning Youth Action Team was on a canoe trip. During the third day, they were portaging, and decided to stop for lunch. It clouded over and started to rain. They hid under a tarp, and were holding hands (for grace). The lake beside them was struck. The energy traveled through the lake and then up through the roots that they stood on. All twelve members survived, and only had a few symptoms. (Nausia, wrist, and chest pains).

i was very disappointed being a fan of rodeo, that there was no mention of the sport in the "sports" section of the millenium book. on the television show "guiness world records", the popular bull named Bodacious, who was recently retired, was proclaimed as "the world's most dangerous bull". why wasn't that mentioned at least in the "animal" section of your book?

I have to say that this book is good, but not as exciting as the past editions. I remember some of the records from back in the 80's and I see most of them have been broken. I am glad to see that my hometown, Chicago, has set some records. That I haven't seen in the past editions. I love this book. Only problem........ need more pictures!! I would even liked it better if it was a hardback book.

I enjoy all the interesting records held. I watch the T.V. program as well, I am amazed at what odd and dangerous hobbies people aquire. ( I have a collection of chicken wishbones I have been collecting for about four years. I have approx. 800 ) Will this get me in the Guiness Book?

Where was the plot! There was absolutly no character development and it felt like I was reading a dictonary! Very little social commentary.....if there was a 1/2 star I would have given it that! Please spare your eyes and time and choose another book...
