3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By math teacher TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 1 2012
Format: Hardcover
Guinness World Records 2012 has amazing photos, interesting pull-outs, and fascinating information. It has been a hit with my grade 6 students as well as my own children. Any book that sparks enough interest to keep reading and initiates discussion is wonderful resource. A+

Grandson, loves to learn, so has had a lot of reading time in the Guiness World Of Records 2012 Edition. It gives him things to discuss at family dinners and with friends.

Fun, colorful, 9-year-old loves it! Oct. 22 2011
By LauraG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I was growing up most people considered the Guinness Book of World Records as a reference book. If that's what you are looking for, look elsewhere. This book is intended as entertainment. It is colorful, picture-filled and fun to read. My 9-year-old son absolutely loves this series and has collected all the previous editions going back to 2004.

great! Nov. 10 2011
By Robert W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
i've been an enthusiast of the guiness book of world records since i was VERY young. i used to spend countless hours perusing the annual records books - memorizing often useless details. it turned out that, over the decades, many of those details have been useful, especially at parties and social gatherings. several times the information has been useful in academic settings. imagine how thrilled i was when my children both expressed an interest in the guiness book of world records. the format changed some years ago - it's much easier to read, page through, perhaps it has a few less records but it has bigger, brighter, and more photogenic images that grab the attention of kids! year after year, it's not significantly different. most of us can go 2-3 years without a new volume. the quality of the information, images, and the books itself is outstanding. this book, this year, is my effort to encourage my son to read a bit more. i give everything a grade, and i believe that this merits a solid "A". i believe that the guiness book of world records is excellent in detail and quality, and ought to be considered essential to public libraries, school libraries, and homes of individuals with an interest in "trivia".

Prefer the old format June 14 2012
By K. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have been buying the Guinness Book Of Records for several years and I have found it is always well organized and displayed. That is until now, the book seems to be difficult to find the tallest man, the fattest woman, the longest bridge. Sure, I found it in the end but I wish the old format would return.

Not very well organized Sept. 16 2011
By James Sibley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When the GBWR was first published it was designed to help people settle wagers. It was well organized by topic and you could find something quickly. The versions the last couple of years have traded glitziness for utility. They are useless as a reference book. They do not even attempt to cover all the the GWRs. They are barely useful as a table top conversation piece. I shall not buy another edition again.

Fun book but not how those born in the 80s remember it... May 20 2012
By Shusaku Endo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My children enjoyed reading the book (young teenager and under 11). It has nice picture and is more of a coffee table book than a dictionary style book that I remembered. I'm not sure if there is another book out there that is more Webster Thesaurus style with indexed records and paperback size, but would like one if it exists.

It also seemed like there were a lot of 'World Records" missing in this version. again, its a rather large book with lots of pictures, but lacking the informational substance or number of records that I'm sure are out there and not listed in this book.

Pretty book, but disappointing - style over substance.
