10 Books That Screwed Up The World

I found this book on the bargain shelf at Barnes and Noble. 10 Books That Screwed Up The World And 5 Others That Didn’t Help by Benjamin Wiker, PH.D. was a very interesting and thought provoking book. In the book the author goes through 15 books that have been written which he argues have had devistating consequences for society. While the author does not mention it in the introduction it becomes clear through out the book that the author is arguing against the ideas in these books from a biblical world view. Each chapter covered one book and clearly presented what the book was about, the ideas that were in the book, and how those ideas have effected society. The books covered are: 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 Kampt, The Future of an Illusion, Coming of Age in Samoa, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, and The Feminine Mystique. I had heard of some of these books and some of them I did not remember hearing about. However, even in the books I did not previously know about I have heard the ideas that were in them before. This book provides a way to understand those ideas and the flaws in them.
