A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

‘Guinness World Records 2023’: bigger, bolder, brighter a book than before; plus WIN one of 10 copies!

It’s been a busy 12 months, as Covid restrictions began easing the world over, and it seems many individuals and groups have been happy to brush off the cobwebs, and get out and break some new records.

Many of these feats have been collated and published in the Guinness World Records 2023: a massive compendium on record-breaking that’s sure to leave readers in awe.

Gorgeously illustrated front and back, Guinness World Records 2023 is as bold a tome as any that came before it – packed with stacks of mind-boggling record-breaking anecdotes along with facts about everything from natural phenomena to human stunts, religious events to medical marvels, spiritual acts to para-sports, and earthly delights to out-of-this-world adventures (quite literally, since there are specific sections on space missions and even ‘space junk’).

Indeed, this year’s Guinness covers plenty of ground (and sky, and space). Heck, there are even double page spreads dedicated to specific subjects such as Pets & Lifestock, Multi-Taskers, Ball Sports, Jigsaw Puzzles, even Finger Nail Lengths.

Did you know, for example, that the longest fingernails belong to Minneapolis resident Diana Armstrong whose nails – last trimmed in 1997 – are over 1.3 metres long? She paints the entire length of them, too!

Something a little different this year is the presentation of more double page profiles on prominent sports stars and record-breaking players. Featured are the likes of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, music megastar Beyoncé, and Most Tattooed Man Lucky Diamond Rich. (Incidentally, Beyonce broke the record for being the first act to debut at number 1 on the US music charts with her first six studio albums).

The great thing about each updated Guinness World Records is that you get to pick and choose what you want to read about at any given time. Want to delve deeper into space exploration? There’s a whole section for that! Want to just chomp down bits of pop cultural info? Sections for that, too!

So easy and enjoyable is the book to navigate, there’s even an index up the back. So, if you’re looking for the biggest, the brightest, the highest, the strongest, heck – even the smelliest, it’s all laid bare here.
