learning finnish

so i've decided it's my new goal in life to learn a non-indo-european language. someone at work told me that was a "sucky" goal to have. i disagree. anyway, it was between finnish and arabic for ever, and i finally settled on the former for a number of reasons which i shall not go into at this moment. i'm sure i will still learn arabic at some point.

i don't really have a problem teaching myself a language. i did that with french when i was ten, and it's how i am currently (but slowly) learning german and continuing my spanish and italian studies. the only thing i'm up against is finding a good textbook to get me started, thus the purpose of this entry.

sooo... does anyone know of any good textbooks out there for learning finnish?
