Cool! Is this the same Matt Parker that did the book "Humble Pi: When Math Goes Wrong in the Real World"? I just got that book, and I read a chapter about coincidences. If this is him, then that is a coincidence.

Yes, there is (quite unfortunately) only one mathematics oriented Matt Parker.

I especially recommend his previous book "Things to make and do in the 4th dimension". It covers a lot of interesting topics, and amongst others, Mersenne Primes!
