Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku, the international best-selling author of Physics of the Impossible. Read by the actor Feodor Chin.
Recording memories, mind reading, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis - no longer are these feats of the mind solely the province of overheated science fiction. As Michio Kaku reveals, not only are they possible, but with the latest advances in brain science and recent astonishing breakthroughs in technology, they already exist.
In The Future of the Mind, the New York Times best-selling author takes us on a stunning, provocative and exhilarating tour of the top laboratories around the world to meet the scientists who are already revolutionising the way we think about the brain - and ourselves.

"Chin tells the story of the popularization of brain science with an up-tempo, keeping the listener's interest in the dense material.... This is an excellent attempt at bringing academic research to the layperson in audio format." (AudioFile)
the narrator was quite good. there were some parts that I struggled with but overall I'm quite enthralled with the amount of knowledge I gained. I especially liked the anecdotes about very curious medical conditions related to the brain. and to think that we actually have two brains thinking separately is mind-boggling! !!
"Information exposed easily for everyone"
As the other books from Professor Kaku, this one is also very accessible, with information being layd out in an easy to understand way. And with a very dynamic and interesting information through all the book.
"Good Book....worth listening"
The start of the book is too good and it explained the background of the subject, evolution of human mind and wonderful theories of the mind very well, however, there is too much physics blended into the subject. Many times, you feel, as if you are listening a physics book. I think, author can bring in more about details and explanation of sub conscious mind, hypnotism etc.
I was satisfied but End was too much physics.
Everything was fine.
Reader was great !
"Good book. A bit basic."
A great book, though I find it a bit basic at some points. I am an avid science reader thiugh and that might be the reason why. Nevertheless I enjoyed it pretty much.
P.S. Listening to a book, rather than actually reading it was a new experience to me and I find it very different. It is not for everybody for sure.
"Great story, abysmal narration"
The content was extremely thought provoking however the narration was absolutely terrible and made listening most unpleasant. A great injustice to the author and I strongly suggest an alternative reader.
"A good listen!"
A good listen, but somehow lacks structure, with long digressions into the sci-fi culture. Worth a listen on a long flight.
"Good Guide to History of the Mind"
Geeky, intellectually satisfying.
The wholeness of it. Instead of just fact dropping, Michio Kaku guides you through a tour of scientifically accurate history of our mind.
I have not, but this is a good listen. At times my brain played tricks and I thought it was Michio Kaku narrating it, not Feodor Chin.
"Telling the future by recounting the past".
I'm rubbish at this.
I bought this audiobook because I'm a fan of Michio Kaku. If you love science, especially in regards of bio-physic, you will love this.
