From the shortest man ever to the largest walking robot, from the hairiest people on the planet to the farthest distance skateboarding . . . by a goat--the most amazing records from around the world can be found here!   Guinness World Records 2014 presents the most outrageous, uplifting, and unbelievable record breakers ever. Filled with don't-try-this-at-home human exploits, natural and technological wonders, incredible achievements in sports and entertainment, and much more, this fully updated edition introduces thrilling new records and incredible facts that will fascinate young and old alike. Did you know that . . .   * In February 2013, the U.K.'s Martin Bacon drove a car he built himself at an average speed of 65.53 mph--powered entirely by coffee beans? * New examinations calculate that Spinosaurus measured 14 feet longer than Tyrannosaurus rex, making it the largest land predator ever known? * At a total cost of $6 billion, the 2012 U.S. elections were the most expensive ever, with the combined campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney costing $30.33 per second?   And that's just a hint of what you'll find inside this engrossing book, which includes countless new photos and topics along with a guide to becoming a record breaker yourself. In a historic year of firsts--from Felix Baumgartner's epic skydive from the edge of space to the first solo human-powered circumnavigation--only Guinness World Records is on top of it all.
