Summary, etc.:
Fully revised and updated, the record-breaking compendium of superlatives is back and bursting with facts, figures and incredible stories - each one selected to inspire you to learn about the fascinating world we live in... and to break records of your own. In a series of 11 fact-packed chapters, we introduce you to the record-holders who've pushed the boundaries of what's possible. Meet... * The adventurers who trek, swim, ski, climb and fly to all four corners of the globe; * The real-life cyborgs who augment their bodies with cutting-edge technology; * The painters, sculptors, musicians and moviemakers taking performance art to new levels; * The stars of social media generating millions of views on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter; * The athletic legends who continue to raise the bar in the world of sports. But it's not only human beings who set records. Explore the wilder side of life with 24 pages of record-breaking animals, and take a trip around the world to visit the most awe-inspiring sights on each continent! Plus, we investigate 10 record-breaking robots to find out what makes them tick. And look out for our exciting new "Snapshot" feature, in which our digital artists put a unique visual spin on some iconic record-holders such as the largest ever crocodile, the richest person on Earth and the tallest living tree - prepare to be amazed!
