Dr. Michio Kaku is known for many things. Among them, he’s the co-founder of String Field Theory, he’s a professor of Theoretical Physics at City College of New York, and he’s a best selling author of many of our favorite books about science. Like the late, great Carl Sagan, and the beloved Neil Degrasse Tyson, Dr. Kaku is a great popularizer of science. He’s able to make physics exciting and understandable to everyday audiences, and with a level of optimism that is positively infectious.
His last three books, Physics of the Impossible, Physics of the Future, and his most recent, The Future of the Mind, have all made The New York Times Bestseller list. The Future of the Mind is now out in paperback. If you are unfamiliar with Dr. Kaku’s work, and like many of us here at Book People, have a love for armchair science, here’s a great introduction from his appearance last year on The Daily Show when The Future of the Mind was first published.
Dr. Michio Kaku will be speaking at The Paramount Theater on Congress Avenue this Monday, Feb 23rd. Doors at 7pm, lecture begins at 8pm. Click here for more information and for tickets! Book People will have a book seller on the premises! Be sure to stop by and say hello, and maybe buy a book!
