The book itself is a record in its own right, being the best-selling copyrighted book series of all time. It is also one of the most stolen books from public libraries in the United States.

The franchise has expanded beyond the printing presses, spawning television series in several countries and a museum. The popularity of the franchise has made Guinness World Records the leading international authority on the verification of various world records.

Guinness World Records book summary

Guinness World Records claims that their organization would never have existed had it not been for the fact that one day in 19517, Sir Hugh Beaver, then chief executive of Guinness Brewery,8 had gone hunting and was debating with his companions whether the bird of The world's largest fast game in Europe was the golden plover or grouse.

Sir Hugh Beaver's idea came to fruition when he decided to commission Norris and Ross McWhirter, who had been running a research company in London for some time, to compile what became the Guinness Book of World Records. The first edition was published on August 27, 1955 and that Christmas it was number one on the UK bestseller list.

Since then, Guinness World Records has become a widely known brand in the field of world records.

Within Guinness World Records, the Records Management team monitors the accuracy and the Records Managers team maintains the accuracy of the records. Both filters are necessary for a record to be accepted.

The book is an album in itself. With sales of more than 100 million copies in 100 countries and 23 languages, Guinness World Records is the best-selling book of all time,3 if you don't consider works exempt from reproduction rights, such as the Bible.
