Guinness Book📖 of World RecordsWe all knew there is a book named as Guinness Book📖 of World Records.’ But do you know the person behind that book? When and how it came to existence🐣?

Long back in 1951, there was a Sir💁‍♂ Hugh Beaver, the then managing director of the Guinness Breweries. He was a fun-loving guy and went to a shooting party along with the River Slaney 🚣‍♂ in Country Wexford, Ireland.

During the hunt, he missed a shot over a golden plover🐤 (Bird) and got involved in an argument over ‘which was the fastest game bird in Europe.’ Later that evening he realized that the reference books are not sufficient to attain a conclusion over the conflict.

He then realized that this is not the only controversial debate. There must be many topics around the globe🌏 which needs to be put an end to and there is a need for a record book.

Beaver’s shared his idea with Chirstopher Chataway another employee of Guinness. He recommended his friends Norris and Ross McWhirtner, who had been running a  fact-finding🔍 agency in London for the task. Thereafter, the Guinness Book of Records was commissioned in August 1954.

The Guinness book was first☝ published as a 198-page edition on 27 August 1955. As anticipated by Beaver it became a huge success👌 and went to the top of British bestseller list by the Christmas.

The book was meant for summarizing world records🗺 but the book itself holds a world record:

It is the world’s best-selling copyrighted book of all time. It registered its own name for selling💵 more than 100 million copies in 100 different countries and 37 languages.
