Why Does the World Exist?: An Existential Detective Story by Jim Holt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Spoiler Alert: No one knows. But, if you're interested in what philosophers, theologians and physicists have to say in the matter, this is the book for you. Jim Holt writes for The New Yorker and the book reads like a long New Yorker article. At times the concepts are far above my head, but overall, Holt keeps the book readable for the lay person.
