There was no conclusion at the end because nobody have evidence to prove their assumption.

Beaver came up with the idea that it would be great it we could have a reference book about the most of everything. It could be make a big hit.

Beaver works with Norris and Ross Mcwhirter to publish the first guinness book and gain a huge popularity in the short period of time and became a yearly edition until today.
