Did you know . . .

At 2 feet 5.37 inches, the shortest (mobile) living man is 19-year-old He Pingping of China, who was measured on March 22, 2008.

The world's most expensive cocktail is offered at the Skyview Bar in Dubai, UAE. It costs $7,439 (27,321 dirham) and consists of 55-year-old Macallan whisky from Scotland, ice made from the water used at their distillery, a drop of exclusive dried fruit bitters, and passion-fruit-scented sugar.

And that's just a hint of what you'll find inside this mind-blowing book, including striking photos, exclusive interviews, special sections on the year's milestones-plus information on how you too can join the Guinness family of world-record breakers!
