10. The magic of history
Is that it is mostly biased. Gosh, there are hundreds of books that theorize the decline of the Roman Empire, for example. Drawing your own conclusions from what you read is the best way to go, but I see your point. You don't want to read an American Histroy text that has a contemporary bias (i.e. blame liberals for everything, or blame conservatives for everything). Just watch out for anything that's too anachronistic (applying a modern bias on something that's in the past).
