beautifully written, making difficult scientific ideas seem accessible, almost easy. (Danah Zohar, Independent)
From the Inside Flap
The first book-length exploration of the most exciting development in modern physics, the theory of 10-dimensional space. The theory of hyperspace, which Michio Kaku pioneered, may be the leading candidate for the Theory of Everything that Einstein spent the remaining years of his life searching for. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

This book also delves into the origin and history of higher dimensional concepts, explained lucidly and brilliantly by Mr. Kaku. He explains that higher dimensional objects couldn't be visualized by us(3-D beings) and thus has to be viewed as projections or shadows on our 3-D space or even unravel them in our space(like a "tesseract", which is an unraveled hypercube).Read more ›
The most fascinating and intriguing concept in the book refers to the ten dimensions of hyperspace. Basic explanations are given for the strong force, weak force, gravitational force, electromagnetic force but the magic in this book lies in the descriptions of the quest for "unified theory" which will explain the operation of the universe in one single equation to the satisfaction of every theorist. The new geometry first conceived by George Bernard Reimann in 1854 was the most important mathematical conceptual discovery heading in this direction, toward solving this puzzle. This mathematical discovery revealed an equation for the fourth dimension. This revolutionary concept created the geometric patterns possible to explain the existence of higher dimensions in the universe. Space travel, multiple dimensions, parallel universes, superstring theory, black holes, time warps, and paradoxes are explained with lucidity in this book. The "Big Bang" theory is compared to the Biblical explanation.Read more ›
Kaku's book takes you through all the ideas that have been put forward about multi-dimensional space in a fascinating way. Adding extra dimensions to our universe, instead of the usual three of space and one of time, has amazing consequences. It can unify all the forces in a beautifully simple way, enable time and space travel and maybe even explain paranormal phenomena! The chapters are split down into subheadings and this makes the physics a lot easier to digest.
'Hyperspace' is so enthralling it is extremely hard to put down. It has just the right balance between science and entertainment that makes it perfect for all to read. The ideas within this book really stretch your imagination to the limit and you will find yourself talking about the ideas to others. I would recommend this book, and Kaku's others, to anyone.
