Cluley is just one of the many whiz kids who made it to the book, a look through it brought out the following youngsters who have achieved big things around the world.

In August 2007, at the age of 7 years and 98 days, Jack Hill, who was born in May 2000, became the world’’s youngest DJ, when he played his first gig at a Weston-Super-Mare club.

Going way back to the 60s, Dorothy Straight claimed the title for the world’’s youngest commercially published author for writing a book at the age of four.

Her book, How The World Began, was published back in 1962 after she finished working on it.

Next on line was American golf whiz Soona Lee-Tolley, known for putting adults to shame on the course. She became the youngest woman ever to hit a hole-in-one aged 5 years and 103 days in New York recently.

Following her was South Korean speed skater Kim Yun-Mi, who became the youngest ever, Olympic Gold Medallist at just 13 years and 85 days.

The book even had the youngest schoolteacher, who was younger than his students.

Professor Alia Sabur was just 18-years-old when he landed a lecturing post at a university in Seoul, South Korea, last year.

When it comes to kids competing in sports, Anne Lewis takes the cake with her record-breaking barrel rodeo at the age of 10 back in 1968.

Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg was declared the youngest billionaire last year, at the age of 23 years and 296 days old, with Forbes listing him in March as having a fortune of 1.5billion dollars. (ANI)
