strikingly clear and well constructed ... provides a ... comprehensive selection of exercises at the end of every chapter * John Gribben, New Scientist * Kaku's book covers the most difficult areas of modern physics ... Unusually for a book on these exciting questions, Kaku also gives a real feel for what it is like to work on them. * Focus * Absorbing, fluently written * The Independent on Sunday * a venture into time travel and higher dimensional theories * Daily Telegraph * Hyperspace is beautifully written, making difficult scientific ideas seem accessible, almost easy. Kaku's journey through the ten dimensions is fascinating. * Danah Zohar, Independent * he has written one of the best popular accounts of higher physics. * Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal * What's all the hype about hyperspace? Most of us have our hands full dealing with just one universe. But Kaku takes us confidently into another dimension, or ten, to see why physicists think that universes are parallel, plural, and positively fermented with wormholes! * John Barrow, author of Theories of Everything * Kaku's adventurous, tantalizing book should not be penalized for promising more than present technology can test. His intellectual perceptions will thrill lay readers, SF fans and the physics-literate. * Publishers Weekly * Kaku has given us a far more than a thought-provoking, engaging read: it is a captivating tour of near-current thinking as to 'Theories of Everything' * Jonathan Cowie, Concatenation * It is the best documentation for the layman of this history that I know of. * Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathmatical Society *
