The world's most popular record book is back with thousands of new categories and newly broken records, covering everything from outer space to sporting greats via Instagram, fidget spinners and all manner of human marvels. Inside you'll find hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and countless facts, figures, stats and trivia waiting for you on every action-packed page. Guinness World Records 2019 is the ultimate snapshot of our world today.

Plus, this year we celebrate the incredible "Maker" movement with a special feature devoted to the inventors, dreamers, crafters and creators who devote their lives to amazing record-breaking projects such as the largest water pistol, a jet-powered go-kart and an elephant-sized hamburger (think you could eat a whole one!?). We take a sneak peak into their workshops to explore these epically big builds, and ask them what inspires them to go really, really large!

And if you like creating, and you like LEGO (R), then you'll love our "Making History" pages that use the world's most famous interlocking plastic bricks to illustrate and explain an important record-breaking object - such as the Statue of Liberty or the Apollo mission's Saturn V rocket. We examine their designs, structure and technical specifications in fully illustrated and colourful, poster-style pages.

Finally, you can jump into both the making and record-breaking action with a "Do Try This At Home" section. Challenge yourself and your family with five fun record-breaking maker-inspired records you can attempt involving origami, balloon sculptures, ring pulls and rubber bands. Who knows, your creation might just make it into the record books!

5 stars
I have a,few of these from previous years, and I always enjoy reading them. There is so much to read, and such a variety of areas which is interesting. I learn some fascinating facts from these books. The section of the book that focused on space, planets etc was very interesting. I also enjoyed reading about the fun records, such as the biggest water pistol, hamburger and yoyo. At the back of the book it tells you how the be a record breaker, and also has pages where it shows/tells you how to make things at home. This is such a fun, interesting book, that you can go back to time and time again
