Sean Carroll at Preposterous Universe brings to our attention a list of the Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries as compiled by the website Human Events Online. They are as follows:

The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels
Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler
Quotations from Chairman Mao, Mao Zedong
The Kinsey Report, Alfred Kinsey
Democracy and Education, John Dewey
Das Kapital, Karl Marx
The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan
The Course of Positive Philosophy, August Comte
Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche
General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, John Maynard Keynes

It's worth taking the jump to the site - the honorable mention list is just as good.
