Starting out as the record book for unique achievements the Guinness World Record has come a long way. Guinness World Records, known from its commencement in 1955 until 1999 as The Guinness Book of Records and in past United States versions as The Guinness Book of World Records, is a reference book distributed yearly, posting world records both of human accomplishments and uniqueness of the natural domain. The brainchild of Sir Hugh Beaver, the book was helped to establish by twin siblings Norris and Ross McWhirter in London in August 1955.
The early edition beat the success list in the United Kingdom by Christmas 1955. The following year the book was launched universally, and as of the 2022 release, it is presently in its 67th year of distribution, distributed in 100 nations and 23 dialects, and keeps up with more than 53,000 records in its data set.
Sterling Publishing owned the privileges to the Guinness book in the US for quite a long time. The group was claimed by Guinness PLC and in this manner Diageo until 2001 when it was taken over by Gullane Entertainment. The ownership of Gullane was with HIT Entertainment in 2002. In 2006, Apax Partners bought HIT and in this manner sold Guinness World Records in mid-2008 to the Jim Pattison Group, the parent organization of Ripley Entertainment, which is authorized to work Guinness World Records’ Attractions. With workplaces in New York City and Tokyo, Guinness World Records’ worldwide base camp is in London, while its historical center attractions are based at Ripley central command in Orlando, Florida, US.
The latest releases have zeroed in on record accomplishments by people. Contests range from Olympic weightlifting to the longest egg-throwing distances, or for the most significant length of time spent playing Grand Theft Auto IV or the number of burgers that can be consumed shortly.
