Does the book "Art of War" only teach about war tactics or does it tell a secret message about how to deal with people and what is this message?

Here is a very intertesting essay on the book. A telling excerpt from the reader/writer is included below by way of illustrating the "subtext" that he encountered:
"I think this text shows that we in the West must rethink our concept of development and superiority. In business, which is increasingly competitive we need to utilize all the skills we have. Knowledge is one of these skills and other cultures collectively have more then the West and they are enhancing their own knowledge and skills by looking to the West. We have to do the same. The West's perceived intellectual superiority will lead to intellectual complacency while the rest of the world overtakes us."
The entire paper is worth the read and a reponse to the "seret message" that can be found in The Art of War.
