Book Description
Getting a grip on the creation and ultimate fate of the universe is one of the great scientific stories of the twentieth century. In the twenty-first, the story is expanding to enfold many universes. Michio Kaku's dazzling book tells that new story. Using the latest astronomical data, he explores the Big Bang, theories of everything, and our cosmic future. His wonderfully clear scientific account leads to some mind-boggling speculations about the human implications of this story. Are we condemned to watch a single universe slowly run down, becoming a dark, cold wasteland? Or can we dream of escaping into one of many parallel universes, each born of a new Big Bang, or even existing in another dimension? Kaku shows how the new cosmology points to these and other astonishing possibilities.

    Simply amazing. Michio Kaku, like no one else, except perhabs Brian Greene, is able to make clear even so "hostile" thing like quantum mechanics.

    One of the best book I have ever read

    This chef d'oeuvre is not only a clear, exhaustive and charming guide to modern physics, but also a clear positive message toward the reader.
    I let it comment by itself:

    This chef d'oeuvre is not only a clear, exhaustive and charming guide to modern physics, but also a clear positive message toward the reader.
    I let it comment by itself:

    “The generation now alive is perhaps the most important generation of humans ever to walk the Earth. Unlike previous generations, we hold in our hands the future destiny of our species, whether we soar into fulfilling our promise as a type I civilization or fall into the abyss of chaos, pollution, and war. Decisions made by us will reverberate throughout this century. How we resolve global wars, proliferating nuclear weapons, and sectarian and ethnic strife will either lay or destroy the foundations of a type I civilization. Perhaps the purpose and meaning of the current generation are to make sure that the transition to a type I civilization is a smooth one.
    The choice is ours. This is the legacy of the generation now alive. This is our destiny.”

    Michio Kaku, “Parallel Worlds”, pp. 361
