Summary
You've heard of the "great books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The prince to Karl Marx's Communist manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual behavior in the human male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas are still popular and pervasive---in fact, they might influence your own thinking without your realizing it
