John O. Virtanen
paperback, 6"x9", 232 pages, black and white (grainy) photos
John O. Virtanen Foundation, 1998

There is something authentic about this book - certainly John Virtanen approaches his topic with a sense of history, describing how the sauna reflects Finnish culture as well as our own. This book is fun to read and will equip you to design and build a sauna, but it will also give a sense of the spiritual, cultural, and health benefits of saunas.
