    The Guinness Book of World Records was the brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the managing director of Guinness Brewing. In 1951, Beaver was at a party where he was asked to settle an argument among the partygoers. Beaver searched in his host&#39;s library for the answer to the issue that was in question, to no avail.

    It occurred to Beaver that there must be numerous such "friendly arguments" going on nightly in pubs and inns throughout the British Isles, while patrons partook of Guinness stout. Beaver decided to produce a book that would settle these disagreements. With the backing of the brewery, Beaver commissioned Norris and Ross McWhirter, editors and statisticians in London, to compile a book of records. ---&#62;THE FIRST COPY WAS PUBLISHED IN GREAT BRITIAN IN 1955.<--- The following year, The Guinness Book of World Records was published in the United States.

    Every year since 1955, thousands of people from pole to pole have attempted great feats with one common goal: to make it into The Guinness Book of World Records. The winners are all here among the 10,000 records that cram these pages, along with amazing photographs, special features and interviews with many famous-and not so famous-people for whom Guinness has become a household word.
