    A Very Thought Provoking Book

    This book is written in a way that is simplistic and easy to understand. It is written very well--- technical, but interesting. Mr. Kaku is able to take a complicated subject and explain it so that anyone can understand it.

    Excellent and Enjoyable

    This book is an awesome up-to-date account of modern physics and it's prospects. Dr. Kaku makes all the difficult concepts much simpler with creative anologies and methaphors. Dr. Kaku is a kindly explicator with a non-condescending attitute as opposed to some doctors of physics. (also there is some neat science fiction prospects towards the end of the novel.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    good reading

    Michio Kaku is an excellent writer and one of the best in relating science to the layperson. Every decade scientists - from physicists to geneticists - come up with up a new, more compelling theory about creation, the cosmos, and evolution. Ultimately, the best that scientists can do at the moment is just that - produce theories. Kaku shares this with readers and doesn't turn corners when doing so. He speculates of course about the universe (the expanding universe) and the attempts by physicists to reconcile Einstein's theory of relativity with quantum mechanics through string theory or M theory. The best part of Kaku's writing is one his own humanity in sharing his thoughts and two his ability to use his 'imagination' based upon scientific breakthroughs.

    This book is a science based review of alternate universes and their relevance to us. Michio Kaku moves into astrophysics and cosmology within this book; broadening approaches enormously. With simple explanations of strings, m-theory, and black holes there is also focus on the importance of electromagnetism. This book makes reference to the universe that we are not alone; and the possible travel connection to parallel universes. Michio Kaku makes an appealing presentation in science that connects to the everyday world. There is a list of contacts in the physicist community for other interesting reading.
