Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, an acclaimed public speaker, a renowned futurist and a popularizer of science with regular radio, television and film appearances. As co-founder of the String Field Theory, Kaku continues Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism. A notable figure in academia, Kaku has written several books, including New York Times best-seller “The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance and Empower the Mind” (Doubleday). This book gives readers an inside look into the budding new developments in neuroscience and physics, explaining how the brain functions and beyond. Investigating a range of ideas such as recording memories and dreams, telepathy, consciousness and mind control, Kaku provides an authoritative look at what the future might hold thanks to remarkable advances in technology.
