Review of the 2nd Edition of The Human Body-
Anatomical Terms And What They Mean by Terry M. Mayhew

I thoroughly enjoyed perusing this 2nd edition of Professor Terry Mayhew's excellent compendium of anatomical terms. Whilst this publication may seem relatively brief, extending only to some 178 pages, the information contained therein is remarkably scholarly and comprehensive.

I must admit that after 50 years of teaching topographical anatomy, I have learned a great deal from this compilation, and for Professor Mayhew's efforts I feel extremely grateful.

The primary target audience for this super little book will be those with an interest in the application of anatomy to clinical practice (students of medicine, dentistry, and professions allied to these disciplines). All would benefit from using this book from time to time to help allay the drudgery of rote learning of anatomy.

In the preface to this Edition, Professor Mayhew comments that he has deliberately avoided eponyms because they do not assist understanding. This may be true, but, given the likely ambitions of his readership, I hope that a 3rd edition might find space for terms often used in clinical practice (such as "innominate") and also include a footnote when eponyms are frequently used (such as Ampulla "of Valer" and Sphincter-which incidentally does not appear in the present volume "of Oddi").
