Regarding the text: I have several books in the "Classics of Ancient China" series from Ballantine. They all exhibit careful editing and high scholarship and add great value to any library. Keep in mind, though, the series exists to shed light on Chinese literature, not to provide a path to enlightenment or instructions on how to prevail in conflict. The intention is scholarship, and they do it well.
Another benefit of having the original text side by side is that there are still nuiances missed by the standard translating due to the multiple meanings of some Chinese words and the varied use of custom slangs.
