Since long before the publication of H.G. Wells’s SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME in 1933, readers in the developed world have had an appetite for depictions of a near future transformed by technology. Listening to popular scientist Kaku’s most recent work satisfies this desire. Actor Feodor Chin’s clear, upbeat narration perfectly suits Kaku’s project. Chin captures the spirit of the material as he guides us into the world of the future. Kaku divides the future into three periods—the near future, the mid-century, and the year 2100—and speculates about a sweeping range of subjects, from healthcare to politics. Kaku's first-person narrative is engaging, and the professor of theoretical physics is scrupulous about grounding his speculation in current science.
