Michio Kaku's "Physics of the Future: The Inventions that will Transform our Lives" is a hypothetical journey through the next 100 years of scientific innovation, as told by the scientists who are making it happen. We all wish we could predict the future, but most of us don't know enough about the science that makes it possible. That's why Michio Kaku decided to talk to the people who really know - the visionaries who are already inventing the future in their labs. Based on interviews with over three hundred of the world's top scientists, Kaku gives us an insider's perspective on the revolutionary advances that mean we'll soon be able to take an elevator into space, access the internet via our contact lenses, scan our DNA for signs of disease and even change the shape of objects - and all still within the laws of known physics. This isn't just the shape of things to come - as Kaku shows, it's already happening. "Summons up the sheer wonder of science". ("Daily Telegraph"). "A whirlwind tour of technological possibilities". ("New Scientist"). "One of the gurus of modern physics". ("Financial Times"). "An entertaining account of envelope-pushing research". ("Economist"). Michio Kaku is a leading theoretical physicist and one of the founders of string theory, widely regarded as the strongest candidate for the 'theory of everything'. He is also one of the most gifted popularizers ofscience of his generation. His books published by Penguin include "Parallel Worlds", "The Physics of the Future" and "The Physics of the Impossible". He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York, where he has taught for over twenty-five years.
