The organization of the third volume of the book which deals with anatomy of the head, face neck, and brain is similar to the second volume. The author asks the reader to relax and gives some tips, mnemonics for ways to remember the anatomy of a particular part. Some of these boxes give wrong information or conception. Old concepts are kept all throughout, the newer concepts have not been added. The author claims that it is a complete textbook of human anatomy containing recent concept, facts, and developments. There are innumerable printing mistakes; in one place auditory pathway is mixed with visual pathway. The same happened to MCQ section. The author has not updated recent advances on anatomy, embryology, microanatomy or neuroanatomy. The teaching and learning methods of anatomy have changed since 1990s which have not been followed in this book. Human anatomy teaching in the Indian subcontinent is lagging behind from the rest of the world. Gross anatomy is a nightmare for most of the medical students; it needs to be made simplified for the future generations. The complex names of the muscles, bones, nerves or tissues seem to be as the height of useless details. Much of the text throughout the entire book is of this type. There is very little description of childhood/adolescence anatomy and/or male and female differences. The book needs a through revision by a language as well as technical editor before it is released for the students.
