Celebrate the dawning of a new decade with the fully revised Guinness World Records 2020. To kick off the '20s, we've created an electrifying new cover and curated a record-breaking edition packaged with thousands of new, updated and classic superlatives, hundreds of never-before-seen images, and a selection of eye-opening photo-composites that put a new spin on record-breaking...

A new decade means it's time for a fresh approach, so starting with our front cover, we've re-booted record-breaking with an all-new design. There's a new look inside, too, and thanks to our team of digital artists, we've created mind-blowing poster pages that will reveal some of our classic record holders in a whole new light. Our ever-expanding pool of international consultants and experts help us make sense of the world around us, so join us as we explore the vast spectrum of record-breaking in 11 superlative-packed chapters.

As always, we're committed to bringing you record-breaking from the cutting edge of science, and this year we've produced a feature chapter on remarkable robots with the help of award-winning tech blogger Evan Ackerman. We've also been out on the road, adjudicating records at events as diverse as the UK National Pet Show, Skill Con in Las Vegas and BubbleFest in Wales. Guinness World Records is nothing without its dedicated record-breakers, so we've also selected the best of the newly approved claims from the 50,000 applications received from the public over the past 12 months.

If you want to be one of those lucky few, look out for the Do Try This At Home challenges in the VIRAL SPORTS chapter - you might even make it into next year's edition!

Travel through the ages, year by year, in this visual history for children told on a timeline that stretches from prehistoric times to the modern day.

In this updated volume, the timeline reaches 2018, documenting recent events, including the Syrian War and the continuing exploration of space by the Juno and New Horizons probes. This unique book joins the dots of history by putting historic events across the world on one timeline, including prehistoric people, key civilizations (Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, and Incas), world exploration, the Industrial Revolution, the American Civil War, the world wars, and humans on the Moon.

Every page is packed with pictures and original artefacts, to give a snapshot of an era. There are also features that explain major events, such as the rise of the Roman Empire, or the fall of Communism. "Child of the Time" explores the lives of children in history, from the tough training of a Spartan warrior to the lives of young pioneers on a wagon train heading west across America in the 20th century. A "Moment in Time" freeze-frames a particularly historic event, such as the first flight of the Wright Brothers.

DK's History Year by Year shows the influences, patterns, and connections between the events that have shaped our world and reveal the history of the world as never before.
