Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Visions, theoretical physicist and bestselling author Michio Kaku examines the ways the three scientific revolutions that reshaped the twentieth century — quantum mechanics, biogenetics, and artificial intelligence — will dramatically alter science and the way we will live in the twenty-first century. Kaku's thrilling, unique narrative introduces a world in which we are no longer passive bystanders to the dance of the universe, but creative choreographers of matter, life, and intelligence. A spellbinding adventure that brings together the cutting-edge research of today's foremost scientists to explore the world of tomorrow, Visions is science reading at its most exhilarating.
