    In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, best-selling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own.

    Robert says: "Don't be afraid"
    "Insightful and highly enjoyable"
    Overall

    You don't have to be a science nerd to enjoy this book. Yes it is full of jargon, but the author explains everything as simply as possible and the text is interspersed with insightful background stories of how the ideas/theories grew. Fascinating and in-depth I will have to listen to the book several times to fully appreciate some of the more complex theories. The audio reader is also 5 star and makes me feel I am listing to the author himself. If you liked the movie 'What the Bleep' you will also love this book.

    A brilliantly original and richly illuminating exploration of entanglement, the seemingly telepathic communication between two separated particles - one of the fundamental concepts of quantum physics.

    Mark says: "A nice mix of theory and history."
    "Insightful and fulfilling"
    Overall

    I only get to listen to an audio book whilst walking the dog. I found the book so fascinating and insightful that I was finding reasons to walk the dog more often. I enjoy leaning about quantum physics,but am not a history person. However the text was so cleverly written that I became captivated with the conversational style and getting a sense of who these personalities were. If you are into quantum physics, then you have to listen to this book to appreciate the historical struggle to make it accessible to us all. The narrator, Walter Dixon, does a great job of reading this title. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
