The Guinness World Records 2014 Edition hit shelves in September, packed with new additions to the shocking, stunning and inspiring feats that have captivated readers for almost sixty years! The best-selling copyright book in history is filled with thousands of ”officially amazing” records, exclusive pictures, hundreds of fun facts and trivia, and an updated, free augmented reality app which will captivate readers with some of this year’s most visually-arresting title holders!
The book is full of fun facts and interesting to the kids. The way they present the information is fun and keeps the eye moving over the pages. These balancing acts we found were pretty cool.
The small sections are short and entertaining, just the thing to distract you for 5-10 minutes. In addition to the large, photo-heavy articles, the 2014 edition has kind of a film-strip feature on the bottom of many of the pages that expand on one theme, such as which entertainer, politician, or other celebrity has the most Twitter followers.
You can see the book in 3D by downloading the 2014 Guinness App with a step by step guide to photo booth.
