Michio Kaku: Physics of the Future
"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 very best accounts of higher physics." -- Wall Street Journal
In Physics of the Future, Michio Kaku The New York Times bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible gives us a stunning, provocative, and exhilarating vision of the coming century based on interviews with over three hundred of the world's top scientists, who are already inventing the future in their labs.
