Then he decided that a book that answers such questions could be of great interest.

The first copy of “Guinness Book of World Records” on 197 pages was bound August 27, 1955, and by Christmas the book was already a bestseller in Britain. Since then, over 400 million copies have been sold. (Guinness World Records)
