Speaking Style

With infectious enthusiasm Dr Michio Kaku conjures up an exciting world in which science and technology transform our daily lives.

Inspired by the death of Einstein when Kaku was only 8, his goal has been to complete Einstein's dream of a "theory of everything" - a single equation which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe. As a teenager he went to the National Science Fair in high school with a home-made atom smasher built in his parents' garage.

Since then he has founded a branch of string theory and developed a reputation as one of the worlds leading theoretical physicists but it is his work as a popular scientist that has taken the world by storm.

His books have captured the public imagination, conjuring up an exciting world of revolutionary science and magical technology. His best sellers include Hyperspace, Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century, Parallel Worlds, Physics of the Impossible and Physics of the Future 2011.

Hyperspace was voted one of the best science books of the year by both The New York Times and The Washington Post and Parallel Worlds was a finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction in the UK.

He hosts 2 radio programmes on science and appears on a wide variety of popular shows as a science expert, including Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Nightline, and 60 Minutes. He has hosted a number of science shows, including the Science Channel series Sci-Fi Science. He's a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and recently wrote the Newsweek cover story on asteroids - will they destroy the earth

He attended Harvard University and then got a Physics Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley. He has lectured at both Princeton and New York University. He counts figure skating among his hobbies.
