Which was the fastest game bird in Europe - the golden plover or the grouse? He realized then that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove popular. He was right! Sir Hugh's idea became reality when Norris and Ross McWhirter, who had been running a fact-finding agency in London, were commissioned to compile what became <i>The Guinness Book of Records</i>. The first edition was bound on August 27, 1955, and went to the top of the British bestseller lists by Christmas that year. Since then, <i>Guinness World Records™</i> has become a household name and the global leader in world records. No other enterprise collects, confirms, accredits and presents world record data with the same investment in comprehensiveness and authenticity.
