Book Review: Kaku’s Physics of the Future

Physics of the Future: How Science Will Change Daily Life by 2100Physics of the Future: How Science Will Change Daily Life by 2100 by Michio Kaku
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

this was an entertaining read. But I wouldn’t call this a science book. Maybe science fiction. Maybe fluff. It is entertaining. I found myself annoyed at some of the “linguistics of the future” attempts (such a word will disappear from the language..) and some very basic bad science popping in — I remember one specific phrase about the level of a society will be measured by “electrons flowing in the fiber optic cables” — parse that again for me?!? I found this to be speculation, too much ego, and not enough physics (to include that in the title). A better title would be “My Imagined Future”

  1. Ahh, electrons, the force carrier for…wait a second!

    Something tells me “My Imagined Future” wouldn’t have sold as many copies.
