… that today is Guinness Book of World Records Day? On this day in 1955, the famous Guinness Book of World Records was first published. Today, it sells about 3.5 million copies a year in 23 languages in 100 countries. Trivia fans: The book’s story began at a shooting party in Ireland in 1951, when the managing director of Guinness Brewery, Sir Hugh Beaver, found himself in an argument about whether or not the golden plover was Europe’s fastest game bird.
