Mind Games

Throughout his extensive career, theoretical physicist and New York Times best-selling author Michio Kaku has brought physics into the mainstream. From his TV specials to his bestsellers — Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future — Kaku explains string field theory (which he helped develop) and other advances in science by captivating our sci-fi imaginations.

And while his past work has explained the real-life science of force fields, teleportation and predictions for the future, his newest, The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind, focuses on the human mind, taking on new developments in telepathy, dream photography, and even the possibility of uploading our brains to computers.

Kaku will discuss this brave new world at a reading and book signing tonight at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue, at 7:30 p.m. Free numbered tickets will be available at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit tatteredcover.com and mkaku.org.
