Christian, Texan, electrician, lover of reading-I lean towards Sci-fi/fantasy but enjoy the classics, history, and science titles also.
This book ranks on a shelf by itself. I enjoyed the way Dr. Kaku explains difficult subjects in an everyday understandable fashion.
This question doesn't really apply so I will just say. I really enjoyed the way the author explained common science fiction topics such as artificial intelligence and time travel from a point of view that accepts their possible eventuality.
I liked the section describing nano technology.
This book doesn't work like that but I did get a real sense of hope for an interesting future for man kind.
I've seen Dr. Kaku many times on T.V. And know his voice well. The narrator often inflected his speech identical to that of the author. I just found that to be a curiosity.
Thought-Provoking, Non-Pretentious. Razor-Sharp.
The author has the rare ability to structure both the subject matter and his observations with unflagging clarity and wit, yet without a hint of dumbing down. Even when the discussion simply must swing out into the highly technical/theoretical, he makes the passage engaging and wonderfully thought-provoking. It's like grabbing a long cup of coffee with the best professor you've ever had.
Yes, but that would be impossible given the enormity of the book's scope. Kaku's observations inspire the listener to delve deeper into their own thoughts before resuming the narrative journey.
The narrator is absolutely first-rate, with excellent pacing, pitch and connection. What a great paring, Kaku and Chin.
My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.
Finally something fun about physics. What a treat to hear someone with a positive outlook about science fiction inventions and the future of everything science.

very informative book,loved. it. the first science book I've actually enjoyed. I really enjoyed the authors style of writing.
It is evident that this was likely a really fun book to write. With each new subject, the author asks questions that I have asked myself many times throughout my exploration of my childhood, science fiction, and science. This was very well narrated, and I found the whole experience listening to this book to be most enjoyable.
Fascinating and mind bending, while still being accessible, this definitely merits multiple listens! It also expanded my admiration for the beauty of, well, everything!
Good lead up and follow through, and well organised discussions on topic materials but something and materials are already a bit dated! Which only shows how fast advancements in sciences are advancing!
This book is well worth the price and a good read or listen, and I recommend it to everyone!
this book allowed a common person like myself, to enjoy journey into a world of hypotheticals. if you listen to it closely you'll find yourself questioning the very existence of what you are at an atomic level.
This is a great book that delves deep in to the middle of physics and leaves you feeling as if you can change the world with your new found knowledge! Michio breaks down every possibility of future technologies, or capabilities, to a fundamental level with just the right amount of science and philosophy well blended.
My only gripe is of the narrator. Most definitely a bland description to everything. It's not bad at first, his voice, but then it just slips in to really boring, consistently flat, tones of expression. Not mono tone, but more like mono expression!
In a lot of cases throughout the book, the author illustrate his point by citing examples of either supporting or contrary research. However, we made like to go into details into some of those examples, with leave the explanation feeling a bit esoteric.
