> When it comes to Chinese books that are overvalued worldwide I suppose it's Sun Tzu, isn't it?

This seems like a casually spoken sentence where the two halves don't precisely match. First of all, Sun Tzu is not a book, but the author of one ("The Art of War"). Secondly, the first part of the sentence talks about books (plural), but the second part refers to a single book (which is all that Sun Tzu is generally credited with writing). A better version:

When it comes to Chinese books that are overvalued worldwide, I suppose there's Sun Tzu's "The Art of War", right?

However, I don't know what the Japanese says. @Pfirsichbauemchen, @CK?
