Why does the universe exist?

A review of a book that is definitely on my must-read list:

We've all wondered. Someone in the comments said a brain formed of the "something" will never be able to explain why "something" exists.  Maybe it's a problem we ought to set aside so we can deal with concrete realities?  Naw, that would be no fun.  Humans HAVE to wonder about this question: whether we approach it from science, secular philosophy, or religious philosophy, it is worth pondering because asking the question is what marks us as sentient beings.  We can't lay it aside.
