Since records began, the human race has constantly strived to push itself, to become better, to set new levels of achievement. That’s why world records are more than just a bit of fun (okay trying to eat a thousand marshmallows in a minute is kind of mad) – but they are also an expression of how we are constantly evolving. Inside this fantastic issue of Amazing! we look at some of the most important (and silly) world records ever! There’s the usual mix of laughs and cool puzzles to do, plus a jaw-dropping poster to stick on your wall. We hope you enjoy what we’ve done with this issue – it’s a world beater!
