5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulus Introduction book to popular science., 9 Jun 2009
This review is from: Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the Tenth Dimension (Paperback)
This book mainly deals with the 10 dimensions of the string theory.

I will start my review with the minor drawbacks of the book. First of all it is quite old. 1994 is 15 years older than our era, witch is quite a lot of time for science. Secondly, i dont want to sound like an arrogant but for me this was the 11th book of popular science that i've read, and to be honest it rarely said anything i didnt already know. Some people said that it got into to many details. On the contrary, i believe that it lacked some deeper details for the more enthousiast reader. But that's all the drawbacks i could think of.

The book is superb! I read it in 3-4 days, it is quite a record for me (i am not native english speaker), and that alone shows how addictive it was. It is highly enjoyable, very well written and very makes you visualize in your mind in a exciting way various terms, such as the topology of space etc. All the terms are extremely well analysed to the point that you feel it is like a fairy tale. I guess that for an unexperienced reader in popular science, reading this book will be a major philosofical shock. Learning for the first time about the double slit experiment, parallel worlds, topology of the universe is not an easy think!

Michio Kaku is an exceptional writter.
