This autobiography covers in great detail nearly 80 years of the author's life. It begins with an account of his participation in the terrible Manchurian pneumonic plague epidemic of 1910. After a description of the International Plague Conference at Mukden in 1911, there is a long flashback to Wu's boyhood in Malaya, his student years at Cambridge and London, and his postgraduate work on the Continent. Following research and later private medical practice in Malaya, Dr. Wu went to China as Vice Director of the Imperial Army Medical School (Tientsin). From this post he was called to Manchuria, where he ultimately became Director of the Plague Prevention Service. In 1930 he was appointed Director of the Chinese National Quarantine Service. After the Japanese occupied Shanghai in 1937, he returned to Malaya and re-entered private practice.

In his wide and frequent travels Dr. Wu has been a keen observer.
