A Goodreads user asked Alice Poon:

I would like to see more biographies of important historical figures in Chinese history. I would even like to read a good, well written biography of Chairman Mao. Are they out there and I am just not aware of them?

Alice Poon As far as I know, there's a biography of Mao by Jung Chang & Jon Halliday, entitled "Mao: The Unknown Story". I haven't read it as I reckon there's no way of finding out whether it is historically accurate, not least because China has banned any discourse on the subject.
