This isnt a book of Sun tzu's teachings with an explanation of them. Its a book that talks about the new texts that were found and how they relate to the other texts and Chinese culture. And its not that interesting.

I read this years ago when I was still playing Bandit Kings of Ancient China and Harpoon on a regular basis because I wanted to have a better understanding of war strategy. While I found the text of The Art of Warfare pretty good, I actually found the archaeological references in the back more interesting (probably why I was an anthropology major). I ended up buying a copy for my Dad as well.
