Publisher's Summary

This is the first work of its kind to employ hundreds of Chinese sources to explain the history and current state of Chinese Communist intelligence operations. It profiles the leaders, top spies, and important operations in the history of China's espionage organs and links to an extensive online glossary of Chinese language intelligence and security terms. Peter Mattis and Matthew Brazil present an unprecedented look into the murky world of Chinese espionage both past and present, enabling a better understanding of how pervasive and important its influence is, both in China and abroad.

Terrible Reading - Unfit for Audiobook

Chinese pronunciation is so bad it critically detracts from the content. Material is dry, so it's not your typical audio book. Adding on top the terrible reading makes it even worse.

Good reference book - not a compelling story to listen to.

I’m sure in written format this is a fantastic compilation of Chinese intelligence agents and operations. However, the dry format and almost mechanical style makes it a very difficult audiobook to go through.
