GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday, said: “This year’s edition really is more packed than ever before. Thanks to our new dynamic design, we’ve managed to cram in more records and more images on every page. And we’ve really had to this year – it’s been a fantastic and inspirational time for record breaking. We’ve seen Felix Baumgartner push the limits of human achievement with his epic skydive, we’ve acknowledged the first ever solo human-powered circumnavigation of the globe and we were honored to meet and award a prestigious certificate to PSY for “Gangnam Style” the most watched video in history! As ever, we’re celebrating that unique spectrum of achievement that makes the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS book such an engrossing, educational and fun read; from fearless adventures and death-defying circus tricks to the greatest sporting accomplishments and world-changing scientific discoveries. It’s awesome and then some!”
