Guinness World Records 2015
The world's best-selling annual is back and crammed with thousands of amazing new records, cool facts and awesome pictures! Ever wondered how far a dog can ride a scooter or who's swallowed the most swords underwater? Want to know about the latest sporting achievements, extreme bodies and cutting-edge tech? Find the answers to these and many more mind-boggling feats in the all-new Guinness World Records 2015. Read all about what's happened to your favourite records, plus discover never-before-seen record-breaking facts like who took the first selfie in space, how fast the world's smartest computer can do the sums and even how many people twerking you'd need to beat the current record (it currently stands at 358 if you're interested). 60th anniversary celebration What's more, 2015 marks 60 years since the release of the very first GWR annual; it's our diamond anniversary! To celebrate this achievement, you'll find a special feature just on diamond records, as well as milestones of our classic records and how they've changed - or not changed - over time. In the 1955 edition the most expensive bottle of wine would have set you back GBP8; but the current record-holding bottle of plonk sold for a staggering GBP75,000. However, not everything's changed in the past six decades - did you know that Robert Wadlow, who towered 2.72 m (8 ft 11.1 in) in 1940, still holds the record for tallest man? At least for now - GWR in another dimension! As if the book weren't exciting enough, our See It 3D augmented reality app is back with new features that bring the book to life! Use your smart device to unlock interactive elements that literally jump off the page. See how you size up to Wadlow, meet deep-sea creatures up close, play our Splat-the-Maggot game and much more.

THE FUNNIEST BOOK OF THE YEAR. GUARANTEED TO TURN AN AWKWARD SILENCE INTO AN AWKWARD CONVERSATION. 'Ridiculously funny and (unexpectedly) genuinely useful' ADAM KAY 'A perfect way to pretend you're interested in people you're not that interested in' KATHY BURKE 'Most of this book is pointless filth, all of it is hilarious, and my answer to question 715(a) is Yes thank you and it was very tasty ' DAWN FRENCH If you had to wear somebody's guts for garters - if you had to - who would you disembowel in order to facilitate your socks staying up? What do you consider your median achievement? Would you rather have pubic hair made of unremovable barbed wire or to be attacked by a rabid badger in your sleep once a week? We've all been there. Stuck at a boring family party, on an awkward date, in a below-par job interview, or any number of other situations in which conversation has become more of a trickle than a flow. Well, fear the excruciation no more, as Richard Herring's EMERGENCY QUESTIONS is about to change your life.

'Of all the clever people I know, Richard is the stupidest. And of all the stupid people I know, Richard is the cleverest. That's why this is such a brilliant book for everyone' RICHARD OSMAN 'Perhaps if Michael Parkinson had asked Mohammad Ali if he'd ever seen a Bigfoot he might be remembered as a great interviewer. Instead it is Richard Herring who has perfected the art of creating funny, interesting and offensive questions that will supercharge even the dullest encounter' ADAM BUXTON 'Richard Herring bullied me into claiming this book, which I haven't yet read, is brilliant' CHARLIE BROOKER

The No.1 Book of Numbers: Exploring the meaning and magic of numbers
Why is 7 such a lucky number and 13 so unlucky? Why does a jury traditionally have `12 good men and true', and why are there 24 hours in the day and 60 seconds in a minute? This fascinating new book explores the world of numbers from pin numbers to book titles, and from the sixfold shape of snowflakes to the way our roads, houses and telephone numbers are designated in fact and fiction. Using the numbers themselves as its starting point it investigates everything from the origins and meaning of counting in early civilizations to numbers in proverbs, myths and nursery rhymes and the ancient `science' of numerology. It also focuses on the quirks of odds and evens, primes, on numbers in popular sports - and much, much more. So whether you've ever wondered why Heinz has 57 varieties, why 999 is the UK's emergency phone number but 911 is used in America, why Coco Chanel chose No. 5 for her iconic perfume, or how the title Catch 22 was chosen, then this is the book for you. Dip in anywhere and you'll find that numbers are not just for adding and measuring but can be hugely entertaining and informative whether you're buying a diamond or choosing dinner from the menu.

1001 Photographs: You Must See Before You Die
Is photography art, documentary or both? Should images simply reveal the world we live in, or provoke us to think, act and react? 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die is a visually arresting and invaluable guide to the history and practice of photography. Sweeping through the arts, fashion, society, war, peace, science and nature, the images in this enticing book are as eye-catching as the commentary is engaging. Some you have seen, others will be unfamiliar, but what all the photographs have in common is their ability to move you, shock you and open up the notion of what it is to be human. Organized chronologically by the date that each image was made, and featuring a reproduction of each photograph, the selection provides some fascinating and unexpected juxtapositions. Insightful text uncovers the creative process behind each image, revealing its visual, aesthetic and historic significance. Why was the photograph taken? Was it set up? What was the intention? How did the world react? From Roger Fenton to William Eggleston, from Henry Fox Talbot to Nick Knight, and from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Dorothea Lange, all the photographers featured in this book transgressed the boundaries of the camera with a skill and spirit that helped to develop their field into a highly evocative art form. Packed with information that will entertain, inform, educate and surprise you, 1001 Photographs You Must See Before You Die is an essential reference for all lovers of photography.
