The fully revised and updated best-seller is packed with thousands of incredible new feats across the widest spectrum of topics, providing a whistle-stop tour of our superlative universe. Our ever-expanding pool of international consultants and experts help us make sense of the world around us and the cosmos beyond.

- Encounter the cutest, weirdest, most dangerous and exotic creatures on our home planet
- Meet the world's tallest, shortest, hairiest and heaviest humans
- Marvel at the latest high scores, speed runs and players at the top of their game in eSports and beyond
- Get the lowdown on the world's most successful and prolific actors, musicians, TV stars and influencers
- Review the greatest sports achievements from the past year and celebrate today's top athletes
We've also selected the best of the newly approved claims from the 50,000 applications received from the public over the past 12 months. But don't just be a tourist: try some of our specially created try-at-home challenges that could see YOU listed in the world-famous book of records.
