Publisher's Summary

Arguably the most extraordinary and powerful leader of the 20th century, Chairman Mao unified 800 million people into one Communist nation, the most successful 'alternative society' ever achieved. For three minutes, on the morning of September 18, 1976, an entire nation stood to attention as a mark of respect for their dead leader. Was he loved and revered by one-third of the world's population for his personal charisma, or for his awesome power and management of massive state indoctrination?

The part of Mao Tse-Tung is played by Steve Hodson, with other parts played by Peter Penry-Jones and Stephen Thorne.

The absolute worst

I have bought dozens of Audible products, and they have all been excellent except for this
one. It is appallingly bad. One of the great stories of the 20th century is reduced to comic book caricature, full of banal music and pompous speechifying.

Can you image, no reference to Nixon's visit.

I checked 1 star because 0 was rejected, but this product should be withdrawn. Ed
