As given in the topic the story inside the book flows between 3 characters, one a child and two fathers belonging to different economic status giving advices to the child of the author as he grows old for a better finical life. To conclude this book truly focuses on what the rich teach their kids about money that the poor and middle class do not being a must to anyone wanting finical freedom.

His eager and curious personality helped uncover such deep dark truth of the Universe enlisted also in his book, the Theory of Everything. This masterpiece gradually describes the origin and fate of the universe from the happenings of big bang to blackholes and neither the less al last the author has described how we are trying to find a unified theory that will include quantum mechanics, gravity and all the other interactions of Physics. At last Science creeps and learners can get a huge Knowledge boost while reading this book.

The God Equation

The scientific topic itself never ends, every point and fact of science can be published everywhere but it will always remain incomplete. Sharing the purpose of giving scientific Knowledge as a form of hardcopy paper, The God Equation remains an update book uncovering Secrets of the astrological universe. This book is Specifically dedicated to find the one and only theory, The final theory A single framework that would unite all the forces of the cosmos and choreograph everything from the motion of the expanding Universe to the most minute dance of subatomic particles, the challenges to write an equation whole mathematical elegance would encompass the whole Physics. Michio Kaku divided and ongoingly summarized the facts of 7 chapters ending with a short notice of if we find the answer to that it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason for then we would know the mind of God leaving the search incomplete.
