Change IP of A Record in 1 Minute

I want to be able to change the IP that my domain name resolves to in one minute or less.  The A record for my domain name is set to ab IP address with a TTL of 60.  If I changed the IP address, would everybody accessing the domain see the domain at the new site within a minute, or could it take longer for the change to propagate?  Is there a better way to be able to QUICLY change where the IP address resolves?

If the TTL of the existing record is 60, then the longest that record can stay cached is 60 seconds, provided the client is using an rfc-compliant resolver.

60 seconds is pretty harsh as far as 'being a good internet citizen' is concerned.  I would only change it something that low in preparation for a change, then revert it to something like 300 at the very least.
