This book helped me quickly identify the areas in our home which needed assistance to change the chi flow in our home. It is straight forward and easy to understand. Our home is very peaceful now and everyone who comes over comments on the zen type quality our home has...exactly what we wanted. Recommend this book to anyone interested in feng shui.
I've wanted this book for months now and finally gave in and bought it. If you believe in the power of good luck/feng shui then this is the book for you. It teaches you about where each gua area is and helps you to know about all the differemt areas of a home or room, types of rooms, areas of the houses, and what you should do and put into each. Very helpful for bringing order, health, and happiness to a home.
This book is not about Feng Shui. It's about object placement, which would be fine if there were any substance to the "information" ... there isn't. I took three Feng Shui classes in the 1990s, and have read a number of books on the subject. This doesn't qualify. The author contradicts, and anyone who didn't know anything about the subject would get completely lost.In traditional Feng Shui, each Gua has a color, number, shape, element, etc. But this author mixes Eastern interpretations with Western beliefs in a way that simply does not work. For instance, we're told to put "something yellow" in our Wealth Gua because of the way we Westerners interpret the color yellow, and then told to use gray in that same place. And neither yellow nor gray is appropriate according the Feng Shui, whether you believe in traditional Chinese Feng Shui or one of the more modern interpretations.I can only assume the author just doesn't understand Feng Shui and is trying to make a buck by throwing out ridiculous ideas and calling it "Feng Shui." But rest assured, you're not going to learn anything from this book. Nothing. Not Feng Shui, not object/furniture placement, and not a Western version of how to move energy through your house.One of my daughter's friends wants to teach a beginning Feng Shui class and asked me to skim several books and give her my opinion. Since she's teaching Westerners just starting to learn the concept, I suggested a very Westernized but accurate book: Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life: How to Use Feng Shui to Get Love, Money, Respect, and Happiness by Karen Rauch Carter. But if you want to get into serious traditional Feng Shui, try any of the books by Lillian Too.You won't find anything useful (or even entertaining) in this book.
this book was very easy to understand and well written. some books on feng shui are complicated and require more research, but i recommend "feng shui room by room" to those readers who want to keep it simple but effective.
This is a fun book! I love the author's style and many of the suggestions are so easy and practical to implement. It gives a fresh, purposeful perspective to cleaning, de-cluttering and decorating.
