    [GuiGuZi/Master of Ghost Valley and MoZi are two of the most overlooked thinkers in chinese history, whose works (particularly in strategy) are no less profound than that of Old Sun’s, and perhaps even more so.

    Actually, its an even more authentic representation of taoistic philosophies than even old Sun’s much better-known classic.
    Its all in the application…
