Record-Breaking Humans by Jon Richards, Ed Simkins

From the tallest to the shortest, the fastest to the strongest, and the oldest to the richest, this book looks at amazing human record-breakers. It uses stunning icons, graphics and visualisations to show you how human beings keep pushing their potential to the absolute limits. Meet the tallest and shortest people and compare your hand to the biggest in the world! See just how far some divers can swim underwater on a single breath of air. Compare the size of the largest film cast with the population of Iceland. Measure the world's largest book next to a giraffe.
