Couple of days ago I got the submission on this blog about something called “Thick Black Theory”. Searching web shows that this is a new fad in the line of “Art of War”. Allegedly the originator of the theory is some chinese politician from 19th century who propagated the idea that in order to succeed you have to be ruthless and cunning.
It is likely a fraud: see following review at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/review/RQ7L19QQEA56J/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#RQ7L19QQEA56J. Also see following message at an discussion forum: http://forum.healingdao.com/general/message/18856%5C.
The WikiPedia page is also shady: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thick_Black_Theory.
