His books include The Future of the Mind, Physics of the Future, Physics of the Impossible, and Parallel Worlds. His most recent, The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth considers the concrete, scientific possibility of moving human civilization to outer space, drawing upon astrophysics, artificial intelligence, and cutting-edge developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology to make a case for the potentials of sustainable human life as it intersects with new technology. Dr. Kaku is also the science correspondent for CBS: This Morning, host of two weekly science radio programs, Science Fantastic and Explorations in Scienceand a Professor in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
