Book Overview

Space elevators. Internet-enabled contact lenses. Cars that fly by floating on magnetic fields. This is the stuff of science fiction--it's also daily life in the year 2100.
Renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku details the developments in computer technology, artificial intelligence, medicine, space travel, and more, that are poised to happen over the next hundred years. He also considers how these inventions will affect the world economy, addressing the key questions: Who will have jobs? Which nations will prosper? Kaku interviews three hundred of the world's top scientists--working in their labs on astonishing prototypes. He also takes into account the rigorous scientific principles that regulate how quickly, how safely, and how far technologies can advance. In Physics of the Future, Kaku forecasts a century of earthshaking advances in technology that could make even the last centuries' leaps and bounds seem insignificant.

   Physics of the future
Michio Kaku does a great job by painting his visions on paper with this book. i would recommend this book for non-scholar looking to learn a little more about the possibilities of modern science.

   Lets Preserve the Earth
It raises a very good question : would technology allow to leave for a few millennia or would humans deplete the Earth to the point of inhabitable and be forced to abandon it before there is a means to advance the Earth? Don 't sink this boat before we find another one that is habitable and better!

   Great Read!!
This is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read! Mr. Kaku explains his vision of the future in clear simple language, and he provides so much backup in all his statements, I am sure that he has an accurate handle on it. This book is for reading.

   Bought it for a class
The book quality was fine. Personally, I find Kaku to be a little over the top, but I bought it for a class, so it's not like I had much of a choice, but to read it.

   Great to Look into the future.
I like the writting style, it brings difficult subjects to a place where it can be understood by all. To know that everything in this book is based on experiments that are currently taking place, the future looks very bright and exciting in many areas.

   You Better get ready for a wonderful read
Oh my gosh, I wish I could live far into the future! I hated having to put it down.

   The reason why I gave this book 3 stars, ...
The reason why I gave this book 3 stars is because I thought that the information was not very detailed about many subjects when I read the book. The book covers a lot of different topics that may change the destiny of humans on our planet Earth.

   Great book
I sometimes see this guy talk and i can think that he is crazy. But reading this book, he has done his homework and the reader would have a hard time saying, Nope that won 't happen. i think he is shooting in some way to be a modern Jules Verne.

   As a scientist and physician, I fully concur with what is in this book
I love this book ''. As a physician, scientist, entrepreneur, and avid reader, this book really excites me for what is to come. There are so many wonderful discoveries and steps forward that we are on the brink. The author does a masterful job and has very well researched everything in this book. For anyone it is well worth a read. The book PS is very easy to read and understand even for a non-scientist.

   Enthusiastic extrapolation about the future of human technology
I enjoyed a lot more from Kaku's later book, The Future of Humanity, The Physics of the Future. It is great for getting a quick overview of the amazing future technological advances that Prof. Kaku believes will come much sooner than generally expected... In terms of subject emphasis, I think Kaku's physicist background is sometimes a hindrance... To my mind, his book focuses too much on string theories and multi universes. This is a scientific area in which most scientists expect to have little to no impact on the future of humanity... Given all the environmental hazards that the Earth is currently experiencing, I would hope that the physicists of the future will focus on these urgent challenges rather than in theoretical alternative universe cosmologies ( ) ).
