The son of Don Francis and Dorothy Ellen, Robert Miller Hazen was born in Rockville Centre, N.Y. on November 1, 1948. Hazen received his Bachelor of Science Degree at MIT in 1971 and earned his Ph.D. at Harvard University. A research scientist as well as a part-time musician, Hazen has used his vast background in both fields to write a number of books and articles over the years. Some of those books include Music Men, The Poetry of Geology, Keepers of the Flame, and Sciences: An Integrated Approach. Hazen's book, Science Matters: Achieving Scientific Literacy, written with James S. Trefil, was heralded by Kirkus Review as "easily one of the finest available single-volume introductions to science."

James Trefil was born in Chicago and educated at the University of Illinois, Oxford University, and Stanford University, where he earned a Ph.D. in physics. Currently Clarence H. Robinson Professor of physics at George Mason University, he is among the well-respected scientists who have the skill to translate physics for the general reader into prose worthy of an English major. For example, his "meditation trilogy," described below, recounts interesting examples, clear explanations, and the wonder of science in Trefil's beautiful and lively language.
