Default anyone ever read "Mathematical Mysteries..." by Calvin. C. Clawson?

I was wondering if anyone here other than me has read the book "Mathematical Mysteries - The Beauty and Magic of Numbers". It discusses many conjectures still being worked on today (in order to prove them).

It has large sections on primes! It was written in 1996, but unfortunately, it appears that it was written just before GIMPS was founded, as it made no mention of it. :(
