The Guinness Book of Records holds a world record!

As ironic as it sounds, the Guinness Book of Records holds a world record best-selling copyrighted book series of all time!

The Guinness Book of Records began in 1951 when Sir Hugh Beaver, the manager of Guinness Breweries in Ireland, began compiling facts. He came up with the idea after getting into an argument over the speed of birds while hunting.

Who would have thought that just fifty years later The Guinness Book of Records would hold a record of its own!
