Guinness World Records 2016 by Guinness World RecordsI really enjoy fact books, but i feel like all of the Guinness books are to similar. I got the Guinness book in 2012, and this one, and even four years apart they feel so familiar. After reading it a few times, i saw it as a less organized version compared to the 12 one. I still liked many of the facts, but some of the pages I felt were unnecessary. One big example in the Minecraft page. It felt as if they were trying to lure in those Minecraft gamers (around 12 years old) but they have a whole edition for video games. This was one of the most advertised pages in the book, even saying to on the back cover. This just feels like an invasion of the non-gamer edition. I am a gamer myself, but I am much more interested in people using there real-life talents to achieve records than memory or skill in video games. I dont see much of a difference between editions, so I would recommend getting a fairly recent one that you can get for fairly cheap.

And the edition — complete with an updated round of titles — will be available on September In honor of the 60th anniversary, here are some of the wackiest record holders. Go, 'Murica. This illustrious honor we want to know how many people were brave enough to actually compete for it is held by London-based performance artist Johnny Strange.
