His other books include The Great American Medicine Show (1975) and The New Brahmins: Scientific Life in America (1968). Between 1947 and 1952 he was a reporter for The New Yorker. He has contributed to American Heritage, Esquire, Fortune, Natural History, Playboy, Harper's Magazine, and The Reporter. From 1980 to 1989 he was editor of the ColumbiaJ ournalism Review
