What can we learn from Sun Tzu's Art of War? - Barking up the wrong tree
Eric Barker stashed this in Diabolical Plans For World Domination
Panda's notes on Baka's notes:
1. Employ deception.
2. Be swift.
3. Procure knowledge.
4. Be prepared.
5. Make the enemy reveal as much as possible.
6. Break resistance with minimal fighting.
Two biggest lessons from The Art of War:
1. Win before fighting.
2. Use everything possible.
Not as popular as Art of War but very much worthwhile is The Book of Five Rings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Book_of_Five_Rings
