What does apiration and unaspiration mean in Mandarin Chinese?

I am going to take a Mandarin Chinese class this fall and decided to get a little bit of background knowledge before. I am a tad confused right now though because i am looking at pronunciation for letters and such and do not understand what being "unaspirated" means.

For example: b like p in spin (unaspirated)
