Product Details


“The wide popular interest in Elon Musk’s recent launch of one of his own Tesla cars into space shows the extent to which space travel has again become mass entertainment as well as, perhaps, mass aspiration. It is good timing, then, for a book by the theoretical physicist Michio Kaku on the possible paths to our future as a galaxy-trotting species. . . . With admirable clarity and ease, Mr. Kaku rehearses the history of rocketry and the formation of the planets, and explains how we might colonize not only Mars but some of the rocky moons of the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. . . . The book has an infectious, can-do enthusiasm.”
The Wall Street Journal
“Kaku is a practiced and very effective popularizer of science for a general audience; he’s unfailingly interesting, with an unerring instinct for the most thought-provoking aspects of his various subjects. The sheer amount of technical scientific speculation in The Future of Humanity is amazing, and yet Kaku is in smooth, perfect control of it the entire time.”
Christian Science Monitor

“Theoretical physicist Kaku wonderfully illuminates possible ways the human race could survive on other planets.”
Publishers Weekly

“Kaku has a real gift for this kind of popular science; he is able to render complex ideas in a manner that is sophisticated while still feeling accessible. . . . At the end of the day, when you’re looking through Michio Kaku’s eyes, the future looks bright indeed.”
The Maine Edge

“An exhilarating look at the future. . . . Always optimistic and undaunted, Kaku delivers a fascinating . . . series of scenarios in which humans overcome current obstacles.” 

“Kaku’s writings have garnered a reputation for combining hard science with clever speculation, and his latest book continues that winning trend. A breathtaking voyage through what is almost certainly the next major period in the history of humanity.”

“Kaku certainly dares to dream big. . . . The language is striking and captivating.”
—National Space Society
