Most expensive spoon.

Largest radio prize.

Greatest distance for brick-throwing.

Oldest coins.

Longest sword swallowed (PLEASE don't try this!)

Smallest functional record.

Most successful female pop artist.

Most mountain-bike cross-country world cups.

Fastest Men's 500 m cycle race.

Longest indoor flight by a paper glider.

Deepest water well.

Longest time to hold your breath.

World's windiest place.

Largest diamonds.

. . . and much other curious and amazing stuff.

Also includes a "Stop Press" section near the end, of recent records that had just come in..
