I want to read this book, but there are so many versions of it which is best? How many times can they redo Sun-Tzu The Art of War? When I do a search at any online book store I find at least 8 - 10 different copies if not more. Which one to pick, and what did you think of it if you have read it? This will be another book for my library I am reading it for self intrest.

I have the version with the Classic Chinese text written along side it, I rather enjoyed it.

Just please pronounce his name right, SWIN-ZI(kind of like 'zit' with no 't')
