Title: 10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help

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.

Here with the antidote is Professor Benjamin Wiker.

In his scintillating new book, '10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help', he seizes each of these evil books by its malignant heart and exposes it to the light of day.

In this witty, learned, and provocative expose, you'll learn:

-Why Machiavelli's 'The Prince' was the inspiration for a long list of tyrannies (Stalin had it on his nightstand)
-How Descartes's Discourse on Method "proved" God's existence only by making Him a creation of our own ego
-How Hobbes's Leviathan led to the belief that we have a "right" to whatever we want
-Why Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto could win the award for the most malicious book ever written
-How Darwin's Descent of Man proves he intended "survival of the fittest" to be applied to human society
-How Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil issued the call for a world ruled solely by the "will to power"
-How Hitler's Mein Kampf was a kind of "spiritualized Darwinism" that accounts for his genocidal anti-Semitism
-How the pansexual paradise described in Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa turned out to be a creation of her own sexual confusions and aspirations
-Why Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was simply autobiography masquerading as science

Witty, shocking, and instructive,'10 Books That Screwed Up the World' offers a quick education on the worst ideas in human history-and how we can avoid them in the future.


Poster Comment:

This book. GET IT. (although frankly, it's far too late to "avoid" the aftermath of the institutional sociopaths and insane who now run this world.)

Been wondering how this culture, our schools, politicians and Media EVER began accepting and sanctioning evil over good? Insanity over sanity? Have turned our world of morality and ethics upside down?

Been wondering how universities and Hollywood were EVER allowed to teach subversion and lies -- and make it seem "normal"? How the type of hateful, counter-intuitive politics that the Democrats routinely support have EVER seen the light of day?

Here's a yuge advantage of reading this book:

The author has already painstakingly read, critiqued and summarized the "highlights" and its respective 400+ year long message of subterfuge, deception that "normalizes" evil and packs it in these series of "manuals." So now you are able to blow through 15 of the books that have most influenced Democrats, Liberals, Leftist, too many gummint drones in general, BLM, Antifa, the NEA, "Nasty-Women," University-types, and Hollywood-types -- i.e. serial psychopaths, sociopaths, and demon-possessed.

For what it's worth, the comments at Amazon are a hoot. Liberal and Commies are screeching bloody h*ll, having had their cover blown. (1 image)

If you're going to purchase the '10 Books That Screwed Up the World', you may as well order its companion sequel (by the same author), '10 Books Every Conservative Must Read: Plus Four Not to Miss and One Impostor'

EXCELLENT READ. Just long enough.

So between the two books you've covered...30 influential books.

SPOILER: The one conservative "Impostor" book is Ayn Rand's, Atlas Shugged'.

And AGAIN at Amazon, the Libs and Left went crazy at the remarks section.

Author Benjamin Wiker WAS OVER THE TARGET. TWICE.

Customer Review

2.0 out of 5 starsWarning-THIS IS A SERIOUS BOOK!!

ByM. Rubleon December 4, 2013 Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase

The mistake may have been on my part. I was expecting something funny. What I got was very much like an extremely dedicated teacher of literature telling you WHY the books were bad. Anyone who's studied classic lit knows that a lot of 'Must Reads' are, in fact, stinkers when you actually read them. So it really isn't necessary to cast asperations on the authors possible reasons for writing them. One person's bad book is another person's favorite. If you're going to skew something, do it via humor. Otherwise, you just come across as a pedantic jerk (as well as sounding sexist).

One person's bad book is another person's favorite. If you're going to skew something, do it via humor. Otherwise, you just come across as a pedantic jerk - --- is well said..

Why? Did you read the critiques? Most are written by those who HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK. They deserve scorn and ridicule.

Otherwise, you just come across as a pedantic jerk..

So be it.
