From the Back Cover:

What the Guinness Book has done for the records of the world, this book does for Indiana, whose resourceful natives and residents have blazed a bright trail of accomplishments in nearly every field. Hoosiers have headed the pack in the pioneer world, in the introduction of the automotive age, and later in the creation of the air age, and even today in the space age. A major section of the book is devoted to sports records of all varieties. Records have been set in all manner of competition from corn picking to catapults.

From Library Journal:

If it's the first, worst, biggest, fastest, oldest, most, least, or tallestand it involves a Hoosier or the state of Indianayou'll probably find it in this source. Cavinder, the veteran editor of the Indianapolis Star Magazine , has compiled an exhaustive assortment of topical records ranging from accidents to women, with particular emphasis on sports. As might be expected, some of the trivia falls into the ``Who cares?'' category. Topics are arranged alphabetically and there is a comprehensive personal name index. Some small factual mistakes were noted. Recommended for all academic and public libraries that collect Indiania. Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
