The team behind Radio 4's THE NOW SHOW present the fruits of a decade's staring at world events and tutting - in the form of the definitive guide to all the biggest, smallest, cheesiest, most irritating, most stupid, most gut-wrenching or most plain silly things, people and activities on the planet.
THE NOW SHOW BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS boldly tackles all the superlatives that other books of world records avoid. It does this by means of making stuff up and scrupulously avoiding too much research, insight, or fact. Unless the fact is funnier.
Split into illuminating subject sections, categories include Most Pointless Bits of the Human Body, The World’s Largest dislocatable jaw, Most Worrying things that could happen to Planet Earth, The Dullest Motorway, The Stupidest Tourist Complaint, the Most bicycles lost by a politician, and more!
