If ever there was a must read, hard science book for a science fiction author Michio Kaku's "Physics of the Impossible" is it. In an easy to understand style Kaku walks the reader through three basic levels of impossible science: that which is only one genius or a decade away, that which is a good hundred or so years out and will depend on several different branches of science advancing considerably, and that which is for all intents and purposes magic. From classic lines of "Shields up!" to the concepts of time travel and rewriting history Kaku invites the reader to step into the world of the impossible.
Betty Adams is an up and coming author with a bent for science and Sci-fi.
