From the bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible, Michio Kaku's Parallel Worlds takes us to the frontiers of scientific knowledge to explain the extraordinary nature - and future - of our universe.

Imagine a future where we are not alone - where our universe is just one of countless parallel worlds, some strangely familiar, some almost unimaginable. And that, when planet earth finally runs down to a cold, dark wasteland, we will be able to escape into these new worlds and start again.

Michio Kaku's thrilling guide to the galaxy shows us how it could happen sooner than we think - and the future for intelligent life is one of endless possibilities.

'This book is absolutely impossible to put down ... if and when we do find out what the universe is, and how it was created, it's going to be absolutely mind-blowing'
Independent on Sunday

'One of the gurus of modern physics'
Financial Times

'An exhilarating read ... nobody who reads this book can be anything less than amazed by the possibilities it presents'
Scotland on Sunday

'The journey he takes the reader on is so picturesque and the conclusions so startling that you are gripped'
Sunday Telegraph
