I just received my copy of this "book" and want to tell everyone, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!! It is a total waste of money !! Anyone with a printer could download the material off my site or some of the other Futuro sites and put together a better book than this. It is 32 pages but only 20 are dedicated to the Futuro, the rest are dedicated to promoting some of the other interests of the author. All the material on the Futuro borders on useless, none of the photos are credited and you are not told where those particular Futuros shown are located. So, if you feel like wasting 10$ or so feel free to buy this "book" (and I use the term very loosely - it barely qualifies as a brochure).I not even going to put a link where you can buy this book, it deserves no promotion!! I only listing it here as a warning to other not to buy it, and if you do buy it do not blame me - you been warned now.

I just received my copy of this "book" and want to tell everyone, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!! It is a total waste of money !! Anyone with a printer could download the material off Wikipedia and put together a better book than this. It is only 23 pages and way over-priced for content that was only downloaded from Wikipedia - I wonder if Wikipedia gets a commission from the sales of this book?? They sure deserve it. Not all of the building of Finland are shown with photos, which is the least that could be expected. At the end of each article are external links, but you need to go to Wikipedia to see where these links are actually located - it does not show the URL only the description of the URL. As an aside, the article on the Futuro does not even show a Futuro in Finland, but New Zealand!! At least this brochure (a better description than book) credits all the articles and photos at the end of it to Wikipedia. Overall though, please save your money!!
