Wilson, as well as in philosophical collections such as Curiosity and Method: Ten Years of Cabinet Magazine and Zone 6: Incorporations, published by MIT Press. Sagan's co-authored Into the Cool, on life and energy, was called "fascinating" by Nobel Laureate chemist Roald Hoffmann; his co-authored Up From Dragons, on neuroscience and brain evolution, was called "Thrilling" by Publishers Weekly; his co-authored Microcosmos, was called "a seminal book" by science fiction author Ben Bova. Writing about this book in The New York Times Book Review, Dr. Melvin Konner wrote that "this admiring reader of Lewis Thomas, Carl Sagan and Stephen Jay Gould has seldom, if ever, seen such a luminous prose style in a work of this kind." Peter Warshall, an editor of the Whole Earth Catalog, called his co-authored What is Sex? "The most interesting text written on sex." His coauthored What is Life? (Foreword by Niles Eldredge), was called "A masterpiece of science writing" by Orion, and included with works by Billie Holiday and William Shakespeare on a list of "100 Mind-Altering Masterpieces" by Utne Reader. Death/Sex, the double book with NYU professor Tyler Volk, won Bookbinders' Guild of New York 2009 Award for Best Nonfiction Hardcover. Of Sagan's contribution Denis Noble, Professor Emeritus of Physiology, Oxford University, Fellow of the Royal Society, and former thesis advisor for Richard Dawkins had the following to say: "In just 100 pages, everything you really need to know about sex: Why? When? Where? With whom? Dorion Sagan slides effortlessly from seductive prose to bringing the reader sharp up against one astonishing scientific discovery after another." His latest books include (as editor) Lynn Margulis: The Life and Legacy of a Scientific Rebel, and Cosmic Apprentice: Dispatches from the Edges of Science, due out in 2013 (University of Minnesota Press).
