Narrator Feodor Chin takes AudioFile listeners Behind the Mic to learn about THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY — and much like Feodor, we don’t remember much of high school physics, but are glad to hear that Michio Kaku’s audiobook is accessible for all levels of interested listeners.
“Dr. Kaku takes complex, scientific ideas and makes them totally accessible, easily understandable, and even pretty exciting.”—Narrator Feodor Chin
THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY
by Michio Kaku, read by Feodor Chin

What a subtitle! “Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth.” Now we are really curious. Feodor’s narration is anchored in a journalistic tone that matches the author’s pop-science style—part scientific, part anecdotal, and part speculation. If that doesn’t intrigue you, consider this comment from Dr. Kaku: “The Martian movie cost $100 million. It costs $70 million for the Indian government to go to Mars. It cost more money for Hollywood to make a film about going to Mars than actually going to Mars.” Listen up, Earthlings.
