Gets the juices of future physicists flowing.
Kaku has the rare ability to take complicated scientific theories and turn them into readable tales about what our lives will be like in the future. Fun… fascinating… and just a little bit spooky.
An invigorating experience.
Intriguing… extraordinary findings… A fascinating sprint through everything from telepathy research to the 147,456 processors of the Blue Gene computer, which has been used to simulate 4.5% of the brain’s synapses and neurons.
A seriously mind-opening experience.
A mind-bending study of the possibilities of the brain… a clear and readable guide to what is going on at a time of astonishingly rapid change.
A wide-ranging tour of what to expect from technological progress over the next century or so… fascinating—and related with commendable clarity.
Epic in its scope and heroic in its inspiration.
Compelling… Kaku thinks with great breadth, and the vistas he presents us are worth the trip.
Fizzes with his characteristic effervescence… Fascinating… For all his talk of surrogates and intelligent robots, no manufactured being could have a fraction of his charisma.
Kaku turns his attention to the human mind with equally satisfying results… he delivers ingenious predictions extrapolated from good research already in progress.
Superhero of the incomprehensible.
Mind-bending. Kaku has a gift for explaining incredibly complex concepts, on subjects as far-ranging as nanotechnology and space travel, in language the lay reader can grasp… engrossing.
Engaging, clear, and replete with cinematic references… These new mental frontiers make for captivating reading.
