Reissued in new covers, this is the run-away bestseller from one of the world's leading theoretical physicists. Are there other dimensions beyond our own? Is time travel possible? Michio Kaku takes us on a tour of the most exciting work in modern physics, including research into the 10th dimension, time warps, and multiple universes, to outline what may be the leading candidate for the Theory of Everything.

`It is the best documentation for the layman of this history that I know of.' -- Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathmatical Society

`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

`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

`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

`...he has written one of the best popular accounts of higher physics.' -- Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal

`Hyperspace is beautifully written, making difficult scientific ideas seem accessible, almost easy. Kaku's journey through the ten dimensions is fascinating.' -- Danah Zohar, Independent

`a venture into time travel and higher dimensional theories' -- Daily Telegraph

`Absorbing, fluently written' -- The Independent on Sunday

`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

`strikingly clear and well constructed ... provides a ... comprehensive selection of exercises at the end of every chapter' -- John Gribben, New Scientist
