It's not even 70 pgs but it's a good educational and concise read about saunas. From the history, to cultural use/impact, to how to build one.

Really good for a quick read or for a resource to cite in a research paper.

I am thinking of building a sauna one day and found this useful in teaching myself more about saunas in general and also give an overview to building a sauna. But you'll need a different book to get the more in-depth how to.
