Some information in my college level Anatomy and Physiology textbook is about a decade (if not more) out of date? The information does not only cause a lack of understanding, but also encourages a misunderstanding.

What should I do? If I contact the publisher, how should I do it?

I'd prefer not to give specifics, as this is a fairly popular publisher.

P.S: I included "book-recommendation" as a tag as it was the most appropriate tag available.

    I'd prefer not to give specifics, as this is a fairly popular publisher. I don't understand why this is a concern. People give errata lists all the time (in published book reviews, and even in amazon.com reviews), at least in mathematics they do. Maybe it's different in biology? May 10, 2016 at 16:37
  • @DaveLRenfro It's not unusual in biology either. It's not the same but I found an error in a pre-print (? it was a proof that people were treating like a preprint) of a textbook and corresponded directly with the authors about it, and they fixed it in the published version.
