Coincidently, Star Wars Insider just did an all Sith themed edition. Gots some good Sith history in it. You should pick it up.

Well the best place to star with would be here http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith then go out and look for yourself its not very hard to look for information on the Sith.

Well, I also want to learn more about the teachings of the sith, it is unfortunate that LA does not publish nice handbooks like "Sith Holocron" with all the nice stuff though.

I mean, we have enough mumbo jumbo about those Jedi thingies, and Sith deserve its share, if not more.

This is a complete history of the Sith I got from wookiepeedia:

Timeline of major events in Sith history
Naga Sadow (Left), Darth Sidious (Center), and Darth Bane (Right), three of the most important figures in Sith and Galactic history.
Enlarge
Naga Sadow (Left), Darth Sidious (Center), and Darth Bane (Right), three of the most important figures in Sith and Galactic history.

* 28,000 BBY - Adas rules as King of the Sith. He later led the Sith race to victory over the invading Rakata, but at the cost of his own life plunging the Sith into civil war.
* 24,500 BBY Xendor and students leave the Jedi Order in the First Great Schism.
* 6,900 BBY Exiled after their defeat during the Hundred-Year Darkness, the Dark Jedi arrive on Korriban, where they interbreed with the Sith natives and form the Sith Empire. Over the millennia, the empire expands to surrounding systems including Korriban.
* 5,000 BBY Dark Lord of the Sith Naga Sadow is defeated in The Great Hyperspace War and the Sith Empire collapses. Sadow flees with his Massassi warriors to Yavin 4.
* 4,400 BBY Jedi Knight Freedon Nadd falls to the dark side and is trained by the awakened Naga Sadow. Sadow dies at the hand of Nadd, who soon establishes himself as the king of Onderon.
* (4,000 3,998 BBY) Freedon Nadd's descendents Queen Amanoa and King Ommin lead the Naddist Sith cult in a skirmish with the Jedi during the Beast Wars and the Freedon Nadd Uprising. Satal and Aleema Keto are taught Sith teachings by Nadd's spirit. After the defeat of the Naddists, they flee to the Empress Teta system and form the Krath sect.
* 3,997 BBY Exar Kun falls to the dark side. The spirit of of Freedon Nadd leads him from Dxun to Korriban and thence to Yavin IV where Kun destroys Nadd utterly. There he founds a new Sith order named the Brotherhood of the Sith.
* 3,996 BBY Kun takes the fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma, leader of the Krath, as his apprentice and begins the Great Sith War. The Brotherhood of the Sith and the Krath fall during the Battle of Yavin IV.
* 3,960 BBY Jedi Knight Revan, hero of the Mandalorian Wars, turns to the dark side. After discovering the Trayus Academy on Malachor V, a relic of the ancient Sith Empire, he forms a new Sith Empire.
* (3,959 3,956 BBY) Darth Revan supplements his forces with a fleet constructed by the Star Forge and invades the Republic during the Second Sith War. Revan eventually returns to the light, kills Dark Lord of the Sith Malak, and destroys the Star Forge. After the Second Sith War, it became common practice for the Sith to append the title "Darth" to their name.
* (3,956 3,955 BBY) In the wake of the Battle of Rakata Prime the First Sith Civil War erupts on Korriban and virtually wipes out the Sith followers of Revan and Malak.
* (3,956 3,951 BBY) Darth Traya, Darth Nihilus and Darth Sion wage a shadow war upon the devastated Republic, but are defeated by the Jedi Exile. A Second Sith Civil War ensues, as the remaining Sith fight over the remnants of their empire.
* 2,000 BBY Darth Ruin, another fallen Jedi, forms a new Sith order and begins the New Sith Wars. Lasting a millennium, by 1,466 BBY the Sith conquer all of known space outside the Colonies.
* (2,000 1,000 BBY) The Sith prove to be their own undoing, as internal power struggles destroy their organization. Lord Kaan unites the survivors under the Brotherhood of Darkness and grants the title of "Dark Lord" to many Sith.
* 1,000 BBY Both Jedi and Sith armies are destroyed in the Battle of Ruusan, leaving Darth Bane the only survivor. To ensure the continued survival of the Sith, Bane institutes the Rule of Two.
* (1,000 33 BBY) The Rule of Two continues. Palpatine is trained under the tutelage of Darth Plagueis and is given the title of Darth Sidious. Palpatine kills his Master in his sleep. He then trains Darth Maul as his new apprentice.
* 33 BBY Darth Maul kills Black Sun's leader, Alexi Garyn, clearing the way for Prince Xizor.
* 32.5 BBY When Hath Monchar steals Darth Sidious's plans for the blockade on Naboo and ties to sell them, Darth Maul hunts him down and kills him. Eventually, the plans are returned to Palpatine and Maul kills the last witness to the plans.
* 32 BBY The Sith, who had been in hiding for nearly one thousand years, resurface again when Darth Sidious orchestrates the Battle of Naboo.
* 27 BBY Outbound Flight is destroyed by Commander Mitth'raw'nuruodo as part of Sidious' scheme to kill Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth.
* (22 19 BBY) Darth Sidious and Darth Tyranus initiate the Clone Wars, and many Jedi die or turn to the dark side.
* 19 BBY Darth Vader becomes Sidious' new apprentice. The Galactic Empire is established by Darth Sidious. The Sith rule the Galaxy once more, from the Core worlds to Wild Space.
* (19 1 BBY) Darth Sidious takes efforts to eradicate the Jedi in the Great Jedi Purge. Some include Roan Shryne and An'ya Kuro.
* 4 ABY Vader is turned back to the light side of the Force by Luke Skywalker, resulting in the deaths of both Sidious and Vader, presumed extinction of the Sith order.
* 11 ABY Last known death of Palpatine, presumed extinction of the Sith order.
* (11 ABY+) Rumors abound of a last Sith, an Emperor's Hand, named Lumiya. Three decades later, these whispers would prove true.
* 14 ABY A Sith Cult, the Disciples of Ragnos, attempt to resurrect Marka Ragnos but are thwarted through the efforts of Kyle Katarn and Jaden Korr.
* 40 ABY Lumiya appears in the Galaxy again and seduces Jacen Solo to join her. Jacen initiates a search for his first Sith apprentice as his current apprentice, Ben Skywalker, had been deemed too immersed in the Jedi ways.
* 130 ABY The Sith return to prominence in the galaxy by sabotaging Vongformed worlds, causing mass secessions from the Galactic Alliance to the reborn Empire and nearly eliminating the Jedi Order once more.

Or maybe he is actually *that* impressed.

But yes, some fans should make a discovery channel style flick on youtube concerning Sith History. Oh, and build giant mechanical Sith Beasts just for the hack of it.

Pick up some graphic novels. Knight's of the Old Republic (not the game it's a series that came out in 1994, I think)

Freedon Nadd Uprising
Sith War
Jedi Civil War (I might have the name wrong on this one)
Golden Age of the Sith
Redemption
Jedi vs. Sith

There are 2 other Kotor Series, I know that one takes place on Taris although I haven't picked it up yet.

There is only ONE OTHER kotor series, and its the one on the era of the kotor games, still not one yet. Also there is a short story on Visas and Nihilus printed in Star Wars Tales, but is considered official.

Well, Jedi vs Sith happens MUCH MUCH later, with Dessel-Boy in it.

yeah, Thats called "unseen, unheard", it was actually written by Chris Avellone, another awesome one-shot which involves a kotor subplot is "Shadows and Light", although not particularly sith based it does fill the Gaps, and explain a bit more about the Jedi reaction to the Sith War....
