The Guinness Book of Records was released for the first time in 1955 at the initiative of Norris and Ross McWhirter English under the name of The Guinness Book of Records, who owned an agency documentation in London, following an idea of Hugh Beaver Irish Guinness Brewery. In 1999 it became The Guinness World Records. During a hunt, Sir Hugh Beaver saw him pass a bird and was impressed by its speed. The evening in a pub with his friends, they debated for a while about the bird that Sir Hugh Beaver had seen and what is the fastest bird in the world. Following this debate, they decided to record all the heavier the fastest animals, etc..
In France in 1962, he released the first book of records under the name The Book of Extremes. Thirteen years later in 1975, they released the second book called The Book of records, since it publishes every year. In 1980 the book changed their name to The Guinness Book of Records. In 1999, the book is now called Guinness world records in 2007 The world record, and since 2010, it becomes Guinness world records.
Since 2005 is held every November 9th day of Guinness World Records, which is to identify and achieve world record attempts.
