A delightful surprise,
This review is from: Strictly Off the Record: On the Trail of World Records with Norris McWhirter (Hardcover)Not really my sort of book but I was given a copy and I started to read,...and once I started I simply could not put it down. The Guiness book of Records has a world renown but I had never given much thought as to how these records were accredited and, I had certainly not thought about some of the weird situations and the strange backgrounds which acted as a back cloth to the record breaking events.
This is a fascinating book and has some wonderful characters and some great travelling. Best of all is the addiction that Norris McWhirter has for chocolate. When in foreign lands where the food can sometimes be a bit dodgy, eat chocolate, that will never make you ill. Wonderful.
A thoroughly recommended read
