    Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku is at his best (at least for layman) when his enthusiasm for creative science, science fiction, and the edges of our knowledge blend into a surprisingly accessible read. That approach comes through much of The Future of Humanity, where his speculative ...

    Everything covered was entertaining, yet the book ultimately suffers from being overly general. Wanted scientific detail and came away with repackaged sci-fi. Maybe that?s inherent in speculative nonfiction. ...

    This book started strong with an easy explanation of complex theoretical physics that made it available to everyone, it dealt with the issues of how in the future humankind will have to leave the earth and how we might accomplish that, it does a good job of explaining all the theories ...

    I loved this so much that I listened to it twice. The second reason for listening twice is that it is chock full of info that is easy to miss in an audio format - so I also downloaded the Kindle version... I love Michio Kaku?s books. This one is about fun science of the future. Sp...

    I don't think it's possible for Michio Kaku to write a book that I don't absolutely love. Dark matter, antimatter, space travel, black holes, laser-propelled nanoships, quantum physics. String theory!! What is there not to love?? Much of this book is speculation and yet as alwa...

    Climate change. The threat of thermonuclear war. Bioterrorism. Overpopulation. Is it any wonder that most Americans today are pessimistic about the future of the human race? In the face of all these (and so many other) existential threats to the survival of our civilization, who can bl...

    while I did not enjoy this book, and definitely do not rec it to adults, if you have a bright 8-12 year old interested in science, get them this! "The origin of the moon has fascinated humanity for millennia. Because the moon rules the night, it has often been associated with darkn...

    The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth by Michio Kaku ?The Future of Humanity? is an awe-inspiring exploration of the pioneers who have the energy, vision, and the resources to change the fate of humanity. He als...

    This is a hastily written popular book with a catchy title but only with a host of rehashed ideas and no novel lines of thoughts or conclusions. The short book starts by excessively focusing on the latest developments in the space travel. For a book with such a wide scope, the initi...

    Well, that was awkward. With Michio Kaku as the author, I was expecting a book more about facts, but I ended up reading a book where the author mixes some bits of science with tons of ?some day we?? and TONS of movies and books spoilers :) I think the book was OK, I guess I w...

    In his latest work, physicist Michio Kaku has focused on the what the future life of humanity might be as pertains to several possible scenarios. Throughout the work he mostly does a decent job of suggesting how plausible these ideas are, or at the very least, the type of timeframe nee...

    4.0 Stars This was a fascinating piece of speculative non fiction that explored how humans might move beyond earth and eventually expand into the universe. I found some of the information incredibly basic so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this book to readers with a lot of...

    Gotta love Michio Kaku. His enthusiasm is just infectious. Also his ET chapter super freaked me out (highly intelligent, language using cephalopods???) ...

    I spent a couple of hours skimming and scanning Prof. Kaku's latest book, and I'm giving up on it. I'm not quite sure why I find his writing style so profoundly irritating. His information is generally correct -- although other reviewers call him out for some bloopers, which I didn't s...

    This book is an amazing trip through the universe and beyond, which apparently could happen some distant day. From colonizing Mars to one day laser-porting our consciousness to distant galaxies at the speed of light, the possibilities dreamed up by science fiction writers could become ...

    I love Dr Strangelove Mr Kaku :) but this book is proof of the trend observed with Pinker: take a popular topic, research all the news in the last 10 years and make a book about it. Well is good but his youtube videos are even better. Kaku will be remembered for his sweet voice saying:...

    There is really no need to summarize this book as the subtitle pretty much says it all. I will say that I found this book incredibly accessible and completely fascinating. I?m pretty sure I learned more about space travel in this one book than I have in the preceding years of my life...

    In other words, our destiny is to become the gods that we once feared and worshipped. Science will give us the means by which we can shape the universe in our image. The question is whether we will have the wisdom of Solomon to accompany this vast celestial power. I haven't read...

    Love Kaku?s books about the weirdness of physics in our universe and the unusual applications that entails. Love the idea of our species heading off planet to maintain the species. There was a lengthy bit about genetics which demonstrated the silliness of the current ?Non-GMO? fa...

    This is utterly fascinating and written in a way that was easy to understand. Kaku mixes science with fiction (pulled from pop culture, books, etc) in order to explain what could or couldn?t happen in the future. I was surprised how easy it was to grasp the ideas and loved the ex...

    3.5 stars rounded up. I loved the first 2/3 of the book! The last few chapters started to drag, though. The last section on string theory and quantum physics was too advanced for me, unfortunately. Overall, I learned some fascination information about our galaxy, technological inno...

    This was such an interesting book. It really normalizes the thoughts of leaving Earth and not only exploring beyond, but settling beyond. Even crazier notions of removing our minds from our bodies to travel via laser beams to the exterior of our galaxy into exoskeletons waiting for us ...
