Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku is at his best at least for layman when his enthusiasm for creative science, science fiction, and the edges of our knowledge blend into a surprisingly accessible read That approach comes through much of The Future of Humanity, where his speculative science is sometimes quite compatible with speculative fiction.This one s a little different from Hyperspace there
