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.
Contents The prince -- Discourse on method -- Leviathan -- Discourse on the origin and foundations of inequality among men -- The manifesto of the Communist Party -- Utilitarianism -- The descent of man -- Beyond good and evil -- The state and revolution -- The pivot of civilization -- Mein Kampf -- The future of an illusion -- Coming of age in Samoa -- Sexual behavior in the human male -- The feminine mystique -- A conclusive outline of sanity.
