I read the PW reviews/synopses. If Professor Kaku writes well, and I gather he does and has appeared on tv, the books do sound fascinating. PW comments about Hyperspace that Kaku's "...intellectual perceptions will thrill lay readers, SF fans and the physics-literate." The synopsis of Physics of the Impossible is also interesting. The things mentioned don't seem so impossible at all--and the book does seem readable. Both are listed now (as of tonight) in the nonfiction section of the Wish List.
