From every corner of the globe--and beyond--Guinness World Records(TM) 2009 gathers the most amazing, inspirational, and even bizarre record breakers yet From don't-try-this-at-home human achievements to natural and technological wonders, incredible feats in sports and entertainment, and much more, this latest edition introduces important new records and fascinating facts that will captivate every imagination. Did you know . . .
At 2 feet 5.37 inches, the shortest (mobile) living man is 19-year-old He Pingping of China, who was measured on March 22, 2008.
The world's most expensive cocktail is offered at the Skyview Bar in Dubai, UAE. It costs $7,439 (27,321 dirham) and consists of 55-year-old Macallan whisky from Scotland, ice made from the water used at their distillery, a drop of exclusive dried fruit bitters, and passion-fruit-scented sugar.

And that's just a hint of what you'll find inside this mind-blowing book, including striking photos, exclusive interviews, special sections on the year's milestones--plus information on how you too can join the Guinness family of world-record breakers
