Highly stimulating

Picked this up after browsing through this and Kaku's other titles. Great read and I will be sure to look at his other works now. Topics covered were all very interesting and broadly chosen. Michio's narrative style I have seen from television comes through well as an author. With the exception of the last two chapters, I found them all to be quite understandable and great at getting the juices flowing and a thirst for more secrets to be revealed. The chapter on potential extraterrestrials was unlike anything I have seen or read before. Totally logical and incredibly straightforward. He rides the balance between scientist and entertainer flawlessly. Thanks for the read!

Physics of the impossible

The. Only criticism is that I did not read it back when it was published.
