Why Does the World Exist?: One Man's Quest for the Big Answer
Why Does the World Exist?: One Man's Quest for the Big Answer
by Jim Holt
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.19

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't read past the first page., 6 July 2014
I stopped reading this book after the 'Quick proof' in the prologue.

Maybe I should have given it a chance; but when a book that attempts to answer philosophical questions presents an invalid argument in the first paragraph, it is very off-putting to me.

It has been suggested to me that the author could not possibly have missed the invalidity of his argument, and that it is designed to provoke the reader into finishing the book. If so, it didn't work on me.
