Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today. He has over 2.5 million fans on Facebook, and his latest book, The Future of the Mind, hit #1 on the New York Times and Amazon Best Sellers List.
He is an internationally recognized authority in two areas. The first is Einstein’s unified field theory, which Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete. The other is to predict trends affecting business, commerce, and finance based on the latest research in science. He is the author of three New York Times best sellers, including Physics of the Impossible, and Physics of the Future. He has also hosted numerous documentaries on the Discovery Channel, the Science Channel, and also BBC-TV.
Dr. Kaku graduated from Harvard University in 1968 (summa cum laude and 1st in his physics class). He received his Ph.D. in physics from the Univ. of Calif. at Berkeley in 1972. His goal is the complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. His Ph.D. level textbooks are required reading at many of the world’s leading physics laboratories.
For his book Physics of the Future, he interviewed 300 of the world’s top scientists, many of them Nobel Laureates and directors of the largest scientific laboratories, about their vision for the next 20 to 100 years in computers, robotics, biotechnology, space travel, etc. The Physics of the Future gives the most authoritative and most authentic understanding of the world of the future. Physics of the Future was chosen by Amazon as one of the Top 100 Books of 2011.
His other NY Times best seller, Physics of the Impossible, earned glowing reviews from the LA Times, New Scientist Magazine, Guardian Newspaper (UK) and many, many more. It was also the number 1 science book in the United States. Many of his books have been made into TV series.

Dr. Kaku has spoken on over 500 radio stations around the country and hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 130 cities in the US and also the KU national satellite band and internet, called Science Fantastic. It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world.
He has also written for Time Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine, Wired Magazine, and been quoted in Scientific American, the N.Y. Times, the Washington Post, the London Daily Telegraph, the London Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Wired Magazine, and Fast Magazine.
