If you have never read Kaku before you'll probably find this book quite interesting (at least parts of it), however, personally I have two major criticisms: 1) Regarding the physical science aspect, there is little he has not published before and which is presented far better in e.g. "Physics of the Impossible". 2) Where the book really loses the plot is when predictions of advancements in physics are set in a context of economic and social theories that are over-simplistic as well as naively optimistic. Overall, I was left with the feeling that this was conceived because it was time to publishing another book, rather than waiting a bit longer for something genuinely different to say.
