In his foreword to this book, Professor William Ernest Hocking writes: "The life story of the institution now known as Lingnan University is a unique tale of courage and adventure, a tale whose truth is indeed at points stranger than fiction...It is this saga which the present account by Mr. Corbett relates with that scholarly care for exactitude of statement which alone can do justice to the inner meaning of these stirring events. In describing the growth and development of Lingnan University from a Boy's School and then the Christian. College of Canton, this narrative offers a fascinating insight into the whole fabric of Chinese history during recent decades."
