This is the third book of this series that i own and the reason that its so much better than previous editions is because it now features both the single and album listings, giving you each artists complete discography in the one book! This obviously means that the Guinness Book now includes many more album-based artists that weren't placed highly in previous editions, and therefore definately gives a better overview of the real music industry, especially due to album sales seemingly taking over at the moment! It makes a start with a Top 10 Dvds list which will probably be made more prominent in future editions due to increasing sales, gives chronological lists of all number one albums since the 1950s, and also gives information on top selling film soundtracks, stage musicals and much much more!
If you've ever been interested in music releases or ever asked someone "what was that song called?" then this is the book for you!
