Michio Kaku, the New York Times bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain.
The Future of the Mind brings a topic that once belonged solely to the province of science fiction into a startling new reality. This scientific tour de force unveils the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world—all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics—including recent experiments in telepathy, mind control, avatars, telekinesis, and recording memories and dreams. The Future of the Mind is an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience. Dr. Kaku looks toward the day when we may achieve the ability to upload the human brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; project thoughts and emotions around the world on a brain-net; take a “smart pill” to enhance cognition; send our consciousness across the universe; and push the very limits of immortality.

Probably going to be great
Michio Kaku is a great writer. He is able to simplify the content for younger aged individuals. Knowing that, I have high expectations that this book is going to be as amazing as the others.
Find out what neurologist have learned. Have an open mind when reading this book.
The Future of the Mind
This view of consciousness is about as future as Descartes! It is sad to see a "scientist" locked into such a tight speciesist box that he has to justify human higher intelligence by designing criteria that only a human would find interesting.
His discussion on brain anatomy carefully avoids discussion of other animals that have evolved brains with specialized parts that humans do not posses in order to justify a falsely concieved hierarchy. Skip it!
