Michio Kaku, one of the leading scientific pioneers of this century, paints a vivid portrait of the groundbreaking theory of hyperspace (high dimensional space), and its newest wrinkle, superstring theory. If the basic forces of the universe are seen as vibrations in a higher dimensional space, their field equations suddenly fit together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, perfectly snug, in an elegant yet simple form that may be our leading candidate for the Theory of Everthing.

Kaku, a physicist, paints a vivid portrait of the groundbreaking theory of hyperspace and its newest wrinkle--superstring theory.
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.
" With his lucid and wry style, his knack for bringing the most ethereal ideas down to earth, and his willingness to indulge in a little scientifically informed futurology now and then, [Kaku] has written one of the best popular accounts of higher physics."
" Mesmerizing...a sort of expository Tilt-a-Whirl in which the reader exits dizzy, elated and looking at the world in a literally revolutionary way."
" What a wonderful adventure it is, trying to think the unthinkable...Among the best of [its] genre to appear in recent years."
