Strictly Off The Record by Anna Nicholas. In this achingly funny and irreverent memoir, Anna Nicholas recounts her adventures judging records around the world with "The Guinness Book of Records" founder, Norris McWhirter, CBE. Nicknamed Batman and Robin, they travelled the UK and beyond together meeting eccentric, weird and wonderful record breakers. Adjudicating Richard Branson's circumnavigation of the globe in a hot air balloon, the world's highest tower of bread, the longest conga line and the cramming of the most people ever on deckchairs onto Weymouth beach was all in a day's work for this dynamic duo.

And, of course, things didn't always go exactly according to plan! Anna Nicholas has contributed to titles including the "Financial Times", "The Daily Telegraph", "The Daily Telegraph Expat", "The Independent" and "Express". She is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and once organised an expedition with explorer Colonel John Blashford-Snell to carry a grand piano to a remote Amerindian tribe.
