What reviewers have said about an earlier work by Allan Konya on this subject: -The book has been assembled with obvious devotion to, and a quietly persuasive enthusiasm for, the subject and is packed with pictures and drawings capturing that enthusiasm. It is a must for anyone designing or building a sauna or thinking about owning one.- The Architects' Journal -Allan Konya has written the most complete text on the Finnish sauna, covering the broad spectrum from the origin and rituals (something often overlooked), design and construction, materials, siting and layout. Every facet of the subject is thoroughly covered in detail and one comes away feeling he has finally understood what it takes to make a 'good' sauna...Anyone interested in designing, building or using a sauna should try to locate this book. It is the 'bible' of the Finnish sauna and is far superior to any other text on the subject. I have designed and built several saunas and still find useful information and inspiration in this book.- Amazon.comThis second edition has 80 new pages with more than 300 additional photographs of over 35 new and attractive examples of a variety of baths in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Finland and France.
