I am highly skeptical of everything Prof. Kaku says ever since I heard him in an interview pontificate on the global economic meltdown, falsely claiming it to be just another business cycle! If an individual believes themselves to be am expert in all areas, just because they feel they are an expert in one area, I begin to strongly doubt them in that one area as well. Also, none of his future predictions ever take into account the fraud-based societies we live in today; not surprising, given his well-to-do upbringing.

This is a book where Science fiction meets reality. When I started the book I thought it'd be way over my head and I'd have to give up reading it. But, as the book went on I was more and more fascinated. Dr. Kaku has the ability to make difficult concepts easy and relate the past to the present to the future. It is just amazing to see from this book, how what was in the realm of science fiction is now part of science and proven to be authentic. I cannot wait for this scientist/author's next book.

Great book exploring brain research and explaining what we know, what we can do right now and in the near future as well as what is realistic within laws of physics and how it will impact us. The book makes appreciate the complexity of human brain.
