    For the first time in 65 years, a modern, easy to understand, truly complete and uncensored edition of Mein Kampf has been released which reveals more than any past translation. This is also the first translation available in an English language audio format. Older translations altered passages, omitted passages, mistranslated Hitler's words, and made some parts more sensational while concealing the true meaning in other parts of the book.

    Raymond says: "Interesting insight into a modernist mind"
    "A great translation of a masterpiece of mess!"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Difficult to follow. Although the original is approaching 90 years old. Please take that into account when purchasing this book. I recommend brushing up on your European history in the early 20th century before tackling this novel. I rate myself an amateur historian and I had some difficulty keeping up with some of the lunatic ranting's. I feel that had I known more about the period in Europe from 1900-1930, I may have taken more from this book. The translation did explain many of the questionable names and events. This helped greatly. When I finished, I wanted to immediately go out and purchase a book covering the early period in Hitler's life.


    What could Adolf Hitler and Michael Ford (translator) have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Adolf Hitler could have died and never written this mess. Michael Ford did a wonderful job in his translation. Outstanding!


    What about James Smith’s performance did you like?

    James Smith was great. He added personality to the translation as if he were the madman himself.


    Was Mein Kampf: The Ford Translation worth the listening time?

    Definitely so. Brush up on your European history in the early 20th century before hand though.
