Annotation:
Finally, a tell-all exploration of the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS by an actual record-holder has emerged. Larry Olmsted, holder of the "Greatest Distance Between Two Rounds of Golf on the Same Day" record, traces the absurd history of the record-breaking record book from its humble origins in bar-room betting fodder to the sought-after hall-of-fame of increasingly bizarre achievements. Chronicling everything from the world's tallest man to the fastest marathon completed by skipping (rather than traditional running), this wacky saga of competitive record-breaking abounds with humor and even inspiration
