Dorion Sagan is the author of numerous articles and sixteen books translated into eleven languages, including Into the Cool: Energy Flow, Thermodynamics, and Life (with Eric D. Schneider, 2005) and Up from Dragons: Evolution of Human Intelligence (with John Skoyles, 2002). His What is Life? (with Lynn Margulis) was chosen (with works by Billie Holiday, Shakespeare, and others) as one of fifty "mind-altering masterpieces" by the Utne Reader. Sagan's essays are included in collections edited by Richard Dawkins and E. O. Wilson. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts--Amherst with a degree in history and has interests in philosophy and literature. Reviewing Sagan's Microcosmos in the New York Times Book Review, Melvin Konner wrote: "This admiring reader of Carl Sagan, Lewis Thomas, and Stephen Jay Gould has seldom, if ever, seen such a luminous prose style in a work of this kind." Sagan has written for The New York Times,The New York Times Book Review,Wired,The Skeptical Inquirer,The Smithsonian,The Ecologist, Omni, Natural History, and many others.
