Summary: This book was a mixture between an abbreviated biography of Albert Einstein and a discussion of how he came up with his theories. It is pretty good at explaining any physics that it included in the book, and was not at all difficult to understand for a complete layperson on the subject.
My Thoughts: I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It’s my second book by Kaku, and I plan on reading more of his work. His science is quite approachable and he keeps to interesting topics.

Which other book by Kaku have you read?
Physics of the Impossible was the other book I read by Kaku. I hope to read more soon. I’m interested in his one about physics of the future.
Have you read any?
I think that I would be interested in this book. With that I might look for something a little longer or detaled. I am no expert in physics so I would still need something for a layperson.
Kaku is good on layperson books, but it is probably a little short for you, as you say. I’m not good at reading physics books (I tend to zone out while reading them), but this one held my attention.
