In this thrilling journey into the mysteries of our cosmos, bestselling author Michio Kaku takes us on a dizzying ride to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space, and, most tantalizing of all, the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own.

Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. If M-theory is proven correct, we may perhaps finally find answer to the question, “What happened before the big bang?”

This is an exciting and unforgettable introduction into the new cutting-edge theories of physics and cosmology from one of the pre-eminent voices in the field.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Deftly transforms the frontier of physics into a kind of amusement park, where you actually have fun while reading about Einstein’s relativity, quantum mechanics, cosmology, and string theory.”

    Neil deGrasse Tyson, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Kaku is good at explaining the cosmological ideas—among them string theory, inflation, wormholes, space and time warps, and higher dimensions.”

    Scientific American

  • “Covers a tremendous amount of material…in a clear and lively way.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “One hundred years ago, Albert Einstein revolutionized the science of cosmology. In Parallel Worlds, Michio Kaku, another genius, updates us on this science and speculates about the future of the universe.”

    San Antonio Express-News

  • “Accessible even for those of us who have trouble telling the difference between superstring theory and Silly String aerosol…Fascinating and sometimes downright boggling.”

    Sci Fi Magazine

  • "Parallel Worlds, which meshes Kaku’s interests in physics and futurology, asks hair-raising questions…[and] runs through the recent history of cosmology.”

    Bookmarks Magazine

  • “Kaku caps a riveting popular treatment of the string revolution in physics.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “In his usual reader-friendly style, Kaku discusses the spooky objects conjured up from the equations of relativity and quantum physics…Kaku will excite readers with his vision of realms that may exist just beyond the tip of our noses.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Narrator Marc Vietor comes across as a Cambridge don discoursing on the arc of physics over many years. His is a voice large and rich enough to encompass all—from the Greeks to Newton to Einstein to the cutting-edge string theorists (including the author) of today. The subject demands a talent like Vietor’s to deliver it. His precision and skill in timing and pacing keep the sometimes difficult concepts and theories comprehensible. With Vietor, these abstract topics are made accessible and enjoyable for all levels of science aficionados. As a result, both the subject and the delivery are un-put-downable.”
