This is an actually metal safe that has a book-like binding around it. Obviously, this is not meant to be your primary safe to prevent "crooks" from robbing you. I like it to hide my wallet, car keys, etc from my kids. It sits on top of my dresser and my kids would never reach for the this "dictionary". It also looks good and blends in on my bookcase with other books. It is not a fireproof safe, so if your house is burning to the ground grab this book! Overall it is very cool and well built for what is purposed. Overall very cool. Comes with 2 keys. Only thing I wish this safe would have, would be a lined interior, since you flip and flop it around like a book to open it. I bought a bunch for gifts.
