Guinnes World Records 2010 (updated)

Did you know President Barack Obama is the first US president to use email in office? Did you know that the largest cheesecake weighed 2,133.5 kg and was 2.5 m in diameter? Did you know that the tallest LEGO Structure measured 29.48m in high?

I’m very lucky because Michael brings quite often many interesting books. Last week he showed up with the Guinnes book of Records for 2010.

As many of you know, it is a reference book published annually, containing a collection of world records, both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.

I like this book because it is full of interesting facts. And yes, it makes you want to run out and break a record 😀 In this edition you’ll also find the Top 100 Records of the Decade, and links to free online content.

This book (in English, of course) is a bit difficult to find in your bookshop.Yesterday walking around FNAC I saw that they had a lot of copies in English. If you are interested you can also order it from Amazon.
