My boyfriend got this recently in order to brush up on his (non-existent) Finnish skills. However, this is a phrase book and if you are looking to learn Finnish it won't really help you. It is good if you go for a holiday to Finland and want to learn a few phrases, or a few key words.
The book is divided in colour-coded sections - there is a short dictionary at the back, some basic expressions at the front, and the mid-sections relate to phrases useful for travelling, food, shopping etc. There are also some cultural snippets, which I found pretty accurate.
The pronounciation guides are fine, and accurate, but the language is very difficult for English people to pronounce so don't despair if people can't understand you. Effort is obviously always appreciated, but you might find that most Finns speak English anyway, so you might not actually even need the book. Good to have it at hand though, just in case!
