Did you know that . . .
• In February 2013, the U.K.’s Martin Bacon drove a car he built himself at an average speed of 65.53 mph—powered entirely by coffee beans?
• New examinations calculate that Spinosaurus measured 14 feet longer than Tyrannosaurus rex, making it the largest land predator ever known?
• At a total cost of $6 billion, the 2012 U.S. elections were the most expensive ever, with the combined campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney costing $30.33 per second?
And that’s just a hint of what you’ll find inside this engrossing book, which includes countless new photos and topics along with a guide to becoming a record breaker yourself. In a historic year of firsts—from Felix Baumgartner’s epic skydive from the edge of space to the first solo human-powered circumnavigation—only Guinness World Records is on top of it all.
