THE FUTURE OF THE MIND............—by Michio Kaku

The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

PUBLISHER'S REVIEW
The New York Times best-selling author of Physics of the Impossible, Physics of the Future and Hyperspace tackles the most fascinating and complex object in the known universe: the human brain.

For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high-tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist.

The Future of the Mind gives us an authoritative and compelling look at the astonishing research being done in top laboratories around the world - all based on the latest advancements in neuroscience and physics. One day we might have a "smart pill" that can enhance our cognition; be able to upload our brain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a "brain-net"; control computers and robots with our mind; push the very limits of immortality; and perhaps even send our consciousness across the universe.

Dr. Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future might hold, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about "consciousness" and applies it to provide fresh insight into mental illness, artificial intelligence and alien consciousness.

With Dr. Kaku's deep understanding of modern science and keen eye for future developments, The Future of the Mind is a scientific tour de force - an extraordinary, mind-boggling exploration of the frontiers of neuroscience.

Comments

.m4b is a great format for audiobooks, because fewer files (usually only 1-2) are needed. They remember where you stop listening, just like if you put a bookmark in a book, or pause a cassette tape. No more scrolling to find the spot you left off.

If you would like the book to appear in the Audiobook section of iTunes / iPod, then keep the itunes file property "Media kind" as "Audiobook" (default after importing into iTunes)

If you want to keep the book in an itunes playlist, then set the property "Media kind" to "Music".

.m4b files can be played with any software that plays .mp4 or .m4a. You simply have to right click and select "Open with". Otherwise .m4b files default to open in iTunes, or may register as unrecognised. But VLC or any other player that handles mp4 can also play m4b.

The .m4b extension can be changed to .mp4 or .m4a if you do not use iTunes/iPod. No conversion needed, just change the file extension. These formats are compatible with 95% of modern players.
