Imagine, if you can, the world in the year 2100.
In Physics of the Future, Michio Kaku—the New York Times bestselling author of Physics of the Impossible—gives us a stunning, provocative, and exhilarating vision of the coming century based on interviews with over three hundred of the world’s top scientists who are already inventing the future in their labs.

Cinder got me a gift?
My heart flipped.

Funny, rich, hot, confident, book lover. Definitely not my type. Nope. Not at all.
