It contains the world records in different spheres of human life and outstanding natural values. The book was published by order of the Irish brewing company "Guinness". And therefore was named the Guinness Book of records. The idea to publish such a book came up with one of the employees, Hugh Beaver. He felt that it will be a must for visitors to beer pubs, during their never-ending disputes about everything. The idea was very successful.
Since then, it has become extremely popular. People tend to get on the pages of this book, it's practically guaranteed fame and popularity. You can add that the book is released annually, and its circulation is huge. A large circulation is produced only the Bible, the Koran and quotations of Mao Zedong.

Therefore, the publishers of the Guinness world records ceased to record such achievements.
