Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "interesting book"

    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! !!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Good Guide to History of the Mind"
    If you could sum up The Future of the Mind in three words, what would they be?

    Geeky, intellectually satisfying.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The wholeness of it. Instead of just fact dropping, Michio Kaku guides you through a tour of scientifically accurate history of our mind.


    Have you listened to any of Feodor Chin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Telling the future by recounting the past".

    I'm rubbish at this.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
