Great Book.

I've always enjoyed Kaku. His books are always well written and even his appearances on the Discovery Channel seem smart. Kaku has a gift for describing complicated subjects in simplified ways. In his typical style, Kaku explains how dimensions beyond what we know as...
I've always enjoyed Kaku. His books are always well written and even his appearances on the Discovery Channel seem smart. Kaku has a gift for describing complicated subjects in simplified ways. In his typical style, Kaku explains how dimensions beyond what we know as space and time could possibly explain how so many different laws and forces all relate to one another. This book is definitely an easy read and Kaku keeps it interesting through his use of examples and metaphors. The theories and ideas described in this book will definitely open your mind to possibilities you have never considered or even believed possible.

Maybe it's me!

I probably would of enjoyed this book a little more if I were smarter. I read the back and I was intrigued but i guess I over-estimated my own intelligance. I recommend this to the scholarly type but not the average reader.

    Great Read

    Mr. Kaku does a wonderful job painting vivid imagery of the unseen universe. It was a great help in helping to define the power level of the alien villians in my novel, Alien Armageddon: The Coming of Cepheus. They are definitely a Type 3 civilization.
