Why does the world exist?

Holt, Jim
Are you ready to dig into the deep questions? This book covers what is possibly the deepest and most thought-provoking question of all: Why is there something instead of nothing? Attempts to answer this question have spawned religions, troubled countless philosophers, and sent physicists and mathematicians into endless chalkboards of equations. The author doesn't pretend to have all the answers (or even a particularly good theory) but he does a excellent job of exploring a wide range of perspectives from brilliant minds working in science, math, philosophy, religious studies and the humanities. If you're prepared to get profound and delve into the mysteries of existence, this is the title for you.
