"It is an ancient authoritative surgical treatise in Ayurveda. It is an unique book which has been written entirely in a new angle not attempted by any author till now. The author worked in a missionary spirit and take up the challenge of bringing out an authentic translation with its anvaya, annotation, alongwith English equivalents and commentary in English. The complete text is being presented in 6 volume. So many books published upon Susruta Samhita with its English translation, but the speciality of this book is, it contains the original text of Susruta in Sanskrit followed by its authentic English translation, anvaya of each verses, explanations where ever necessary are furnished in authorative invocations which makes each volume self reliant. Besides this suggestions given regarding possible area of research so that research can be planned on the basis of suggestion made in this book. The text is uncluttered and easy on the subject. A wealth of information is given. The subject matter is well organised, accurate and accompanied by high quality photographs which are particularly relevant and informative. The descriptions of chapter is excellent for a book intended for students and teachers.

With the increasing interest now a days for the study of texts in Ayurveda, both with in and out side India, a great need is felt for English translation and with its bit by bit anvaya vyakhya. This work on Susruta Samhita published first time is hope to be immense helpful for research scholars, students and practitioners of Ayurveda." (jacket)
