I really enjoyed this book. It was straight forward and very informative. I really liked how this book went into detail about decluttering and space cleansing. She gave very easy to implement methods to improve the flow of energy in a space. This has to be one of the best Feng Shui books I have read so far.
last read this in 2006 when i received it as a gift. something drew me to pick it up again & it has inspired me to clean & clear my home. it possibly explains why my life has stood still - stagnated maybe - for several years but, whatever it was, i'm immensely thankful that it has given me the kick i needed to get on & thoroughly clean (& take an interest in) my home and sort a dozen or so boxes of papers that have been waiting since 2008. i'm not sure that keeping my bathroom do ...more
I was needing change the kids all grew up and left home and here I was with no way to think about things. I was just walking through the Barnes and Noble passing time. I picked this book up and flipped it open to a page that grabbed me and had me thinking. Does your space hold what you love and reflect who you are? Mine didn't and this book is changing my life as I see it.

Yes the pink light stuff is way out there but this book is amazing! I am finally free of my pioneer ancestors habit of SAVE
this book is big, has huge gorgeous pictures, and a TON of information. it's probably one of the best feng shui books, especially judging from all the 5 star reviews.

it was just a bit much for me. when it started talking about going within and sending "pink light" to all of your loved, okay? i just wanted to know where to put a potted plant or a mini-water fountain to help me be more calm and less stressed. ;)

needless to say, i skimmed through the rest of it and turned it back in to th

My absolute go to book on Feng Shui. Buy it if you don't already have it.
I picked up this book because we just moved to a new home and wanted to get some ideas for our fresh start. I liked parts of it and some of the ideas. I like a clean, clutter free home - only surrounding yourself with things that you love and things that bring good memories. However, as I got into the more detailed later chapters I had to start skimming as some of the ideas (many of the ideas) were pretty out there and bothered me (i.e. Always close the lid of your toilet and the door to your ba ...more

This is one of those books I have picked up and put down for years. I read it just before bed to pick up a hint or two.

Frankly, I'm not big into the feng shui mumbo jumbo (skeptic alert!), but the intuitive information makes sense to me. I will incorporate an idea here or there because I like that Barrett doesn't present feng shui like some type of science. She states very clearly that you should do what feels right.

This book is fantastic! I picked it up on a friend's recommendation (thanks Ida!), and used it to help decorate our new apt. in Munich. It truly has made a difference in our lives. We have especially noticed a difference after we focused on energizing our career and wealth/prosperity energy centers. We both have found new jobs that we are really happy about!
I read tons of this stuff and this is a good, clear, if over-simplified, explanation. In discussing the philosophy of feng shui from a western perspective she gives the reader a lot to think about before you ever get to the part about hanging windchimes and moving the furniture. And the photos of properly feng shui-ed interiors are beautiful.
Amazing book, loved the pictures and the way it was organised.
I have been reading this book trying to find ways to work on our new house and I must say it has motivated me a lot. I am ready to clear clutter and beautify my spaces, but as the book suggests this is a slow process and can't be done in a weekend. Darn.
This book has some great ideas, while others are a bit out there. I love to decorate and rearrange rooms (especially with things I pick up at garage sales!) so this book is fun to have as a reference for ideas.

I love this book and the feng shui philosophy, though I'm not hanging all kinds of tchockis (sp?) all over the place. I get the jist: make the energy flow through your house and feel better!
This book was pretty good. After reading it I went through about 4 other Feng Shui books and my favorite was "Feng Shui for the garden".

Great, great, great. I can't wait to get into our new place and start over completely fresh!
Best feng shui book ever. Pink light to all of you.
A beautiful and well-laid-out book.
