Is it just a coincidence that these are all prime numbers? How do twin primes differ from cousin primes, and what on earth (or in the mind of a mathematician) could be sexy about prime numbers?/5.

The New Book of Prime Number Records by Paulo Ribenboim is very good and will most likely fit best to your need.; Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics by John Derbyshire.
