Product description

Review

"[A] wide-ranging tour of what to expect from technological progress over the next century or so.... fascinating—and related with commendable clarity"--Wall Street Journal

"Mind-bending....fascinating....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"--San Francisco Chronicle

"[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"--USA Today

"Epic in its scope and heroic in its inspiration"--Scientific American

"Following in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci and Jules Verne, Kaku, author of a handful of books about science, looks into the not-so-distant future and envisions what the world will look like. It should be an exciting place, with driverless cars, Internet glasses, universal translators, robot surgeons, the resurrection of extinct life forms, designer children, space tourism, a manned mission to Mars, none of which turn out to be as science-fictiony as they sound. In fact, the most exciting thing about the book is the fact that most of the developments Kaku discusses can be directly extrapolated from existing technologies. Robot surgeons and driverless cars, for example, already exist in rudimentary forms. Kaku, a physics professor and one of the originators of the string field theory (an offshoot of the more general string theory), draws on current research to show how, in a very real sense, our future has already been written. The book's lively, user-friendly style should appeal equally to fans of science fiction and popular science."
--Booklist

"Breezy, accessible and cheerily upbeat new book....Kaku’s primary strengths, other than his obvious expertise as a physicist, lie in the lucidity of his explanations....enviable access to many laboratories and research and development departments around the world....scrupulous"--The Sunday Times (UK)

Praise for MICHIO KAKU

“Mesmerizing . . . the reader exits dizzy, elated, and looking at the world in a literally revolutionary way.”
Washington Post Book World

“With his lucid and wry style, his knack for bringing the most ethereal ideas down to earth, and his willingness to indulge in a little scientifically informed futurology now and then . . . Michio Kaku has written one of the best popular accounts of higher physics.”
Wall Street Journal

“What a wonderful adventure it is, trying to think the unthinkable.”
New York Times Book Review

“An erudite, compelling, insider’s look into the most mind-bending potential of science research.”
Chicago Tribune
“Accessible, entertaining, and inspiring”
New Scientist

“Mesmerizing information breathtakingly presented . . . thoroughly engaging . . . magnificent!”
Philadelphia Inquirer

“An invigorating experience”
—Christian Science Monitor

“Kaku covers a tremendous amount of material . . . in a clear and lively way.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review
