 A recommended favourite for xmas

This was on my nephews xmas list so volunteered to get it for him. It was as interesting as ever and still full of great facts.and records. Its been years since I saw one of these myself and it has been modernised with more graphics/pics to bring it into the modern era. Recommend to buy at sale price (8.99) as the full price of (20.00) is too steep imho. Free delivery too so again another great buy.

 Does exactly what it says on the cover!

I love the Guinness Books, year in year out they deliver a book that will never disappoint. From the strange to the stranger, the smallest to the tallest, the thinnist to the largest Guinness World Records is a must buy this Christmas.
