Dangerous Books

A panel of conservative scholars and public policy leaders has put together a list of the ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries (link from Tom Trelvik). If I've read parts of 4 of the 10 books--specifically, the first four--does that make me 40% dangerous?

And is anyone else surprised that Freud didn't score higher? And why didn't Stalin's books get in there? Maybe his books weren't bestsellers in their time (outside of the U.S.S.R., that is), but Mein Kampf only got bestseller status after the Nazis started giving them out as "gifts".
