Reviews

"The essential tubeside companion for the fans of the venerable Star Trek series."--Washington Post
"This book is fun...Krauss is always enlightening."--New York Times Book Review
"A fascinating way to learn more about physics."--St. Petersburg Times
"One of the year's best gifts for a science-fiction fan."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"The Physics of Star Trek is a fun, readable little book by an eminent physicist that boldly goes where few serious scientists have ever gone before."--Tampa Tribune
What makes Krauss's book a winner is that it provides a pulpit for a thoughtful sermon on the possibilities locked in a universe that might or might not include a planet called Vulcan and a language called Klingon but that certainly could - in theory - deliver an antigravitational force called vacuum energy.--The Guardian
Even those who have never watched an episode of Star Trek will be entertained and enlightened by theoretical physicist Krauss's adventurous investigation of interstellar flight, time travel, teleportation of objects and the possibility of extraterrestrial life.--Publishers Weekly
