Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku, the international best-selling author of Physics of the Impossible. Read by the actor Feodor Chin.
Recording memories, mind reading, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis - no longer are these feats of the mind solely the province of overheated science fiction. As Michio Kaku reveals, not only are they possible, but with the latest advances in brain science and recent astonishing breakthroughs in technology, they already exist.
In The Future of the Mind, the New York Times best-selling author takes us on a stunning, provocative and exhilarating tour of the top laboratories around the world to meet the scientists who are already revolutionising the way we think about the brain - and ourselves.

Critic Reviews

"Chin tells the story of the popularization of brain science with an up-tempo, keeping the listener's interest in the dense material.... This is an excellent attempt at bringing academic research to the layperson in audio format." ( AudioFile)

Information exposed easily for everyone

As the other books from Professor Kaku, this one is also very accessible, with information being layd out in an easy to understand way. And with a very dynamic and interesting information through all the book.

Good Book....worth listening

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The start of the book is too good and it explained the background of the subject, evolution of human mind and wonderful theories of the mind very well, however, there is too much physics blended into the subject. Many times, you feel, as if you are listening a physics book. I think, author can bring in more about details and explanation of sub conscious mind, hypnotism etc.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was satisfied but End was too much physics.

What aspect of Feodor Chin’s performance would you have changed?

Everything was fine.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

Reader was great !

interesting book

the narrator was quite good. there were some parts that I struggled with but overall I'm quite enthralled with the amount of knowledge I gained. I especially liked the anecdotes about very curious medical conditions related to the brain. and to think that we actually have two brains thinking separately is mind-boggling! !!

I rate 9/10

Great food for thought. Could have been written a wee bit better but overall 9/10. Recommended.
