Wow.. I love books so much that it’s difficult to think of any really horrible ones. Nevertheless, here’s my best attempt:
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. His Da Vinci Code is okay, but A and D suffers from increible racism towards Arabs, including using such terms (in seriousness) as “Barb-Arab-ians” and never providing his prominent Arabian character with a name, using such epithets as “the beast”.

If I think of any more, I’ll be sure to post them.

Well, I for one do not like “Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact” by Vine Deloria, Jr. It’s poorly researched, inflammatory, and poorly researched. Really. I mean, he makes interesting points, but all of the things he wants to see happen already are. My favorite example is when he goes on about how scientists aren’t investigating herbal remedies that Native Americans use . . . well, they are. That’s why we have GNCs and medical schools that teach the usual biomedical approach as well holistics.
