I remember reading my first Guinness World Records when I was a kid and for a long time it was my favorite book.
It was full of fascinating information and although most of them weren't of big importance I remember dreaming about being involved in it with some of my record.

Today I don't dream about that anymore because I do things in my life that don't qualify for world records (besides maybe writing largest number of Amazon reviews :-)) but I still like to read each year new edition of this interesting book.

This year's edition is still book that can be recommended for all ages and although most if not all of this data can be found on Internet it's still uncomparable to holding nicely designed hardcover book with all these facts inside.

The 2014 edition comes with many new and/or updated records, e.g. skateboarding goats, furriest cat, giant drum kit that needs whole band of five people to play it and many many more.

And although Guinness World Records book is always seen as collection of trivia (what actually and basically it is), it can be also seen as good starting point for readers to start exploring and encourage people to learn more about something they're interested for.

Due to that, without going into too much discussion about its literary value, this book still is and probably will be one of my dearest ones...

Guinness World Records of 2014 is still a dip-in look at the most momentous and grandiose records. Most are in the bizarre group, equally fascinating as the more conventional achievements. As with last year there are download 3D features that may or not appeal. I guess most will be enthralled by the amazing facts. As a record's fan of too many years to remember, well-before the beloved Roy Castle, I still find human achievement is, in terms of athleticism and bravery, the attraction to me. Each time I look at the length of my lounge and it's height it amazes me that someone has jumped beyond or above. That is the reality for me and a constant source of bewilderment. This is jam-packed with information and entertainment. Even the ketchup drinking and sausage eating champions stretch the extent of human endeavour, determination, motivation and even sanity. Excellent value and another big-seller.

I have many earlier editions. 2014 is excellent, but some of the previous good information is replaced by trivial records, amusing but of no consequence.
