One of the greatest books ever written. This thread offers information...
Here's a video to introduce this subject.



That's only the History Channels edition on what 'the art of war' is all about...
Forming your own ideas in the learning process is much better.  Reading the text may prove helpful.

 

This leads to a PDF link to the text:

The Art of War

 

Plus, here's the audio book video.  Listen to it at your leisure

"All warfare is based on deception," wrote Chinese General Sun Tzu in The Art of War more than twenty-five hundred years ago. He goes on to say that "supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistence without fighting."
Inducing stress, anxiety, fear and terror in a population is a strategy of psychological warfare. Thinking and behavior can be altered when people are subjected to intense and prolonged stress.

"In states of human fear and excitement the most wildly improbable suggestions can be accepted by apparently sensible people,"
wrote British psychiatrist Dr. William Sargant in his 1957 book Battle for the Mind, which examines the psychology of religious conversion and political brain-washing.

 

He concludes:  "The politico-religious struggle for the mind of man may well be won by whoever becomes most conversant with the normal and abnormal functions of the brain, and is readiest to make use of the knowledge gained."

Niccolo Machiavelli's body of work would be an excellent addition in the study of war and politics.

It might help to learn more about the world according to China.  This lecture series is pretty extensive.  Telling thousands of years of Chinese history. Worthy addition to think about when studying Sun Tzu.
 
 
Too bad there isn't enough Chinese history documentaries worth mentioning in English.  When are the software developers going to figure out real time translation software for watching videos on youtube.
