Had a hard time picking a shelf for this one. Settled on informational text, but .... I don't know. To believe or not to believe. There's an element of this that makes sense to me. Clutter. If one has a cluttered space, on one level or another, that clutter will ... bug the person, weigh them down, in that they'll always feel the need to clean. Clutter collects dust and creates problems for allergy and asthma sufferers. Okay. That aspect makes perfect sense. But .... Now, it should also be said...more
This book came to me from a good friend at the perfect time in my life. It's an easy to read guide that includes some of the background philosophies but focuses on applied approaches for using Feng Shui. You could read it to create positive energy around key goals in your life, or just use to find new ways to have a less cluttered and happier space. Feeling the nesting itch, or the urge to move your furniture around? This book will validate those feelings while simultaneously giving you some gui...more

I recommend The Western Guide to Feng Shui Room by Room by Terah Kathryn Collins as the first feng shui book to read. Collins' book is easy to read and covers the basic feng shui concepts: yin/yang, the five elements and the bagua. It also discusses basic feng shui cures and their application. In addition, the book guides you through each room of your home and office, pointing out how to address common feng shui pitfalls.
This is a GREAT book. It is easy to flip through based on which room your in, or which section of the Bagua Map you're in. Very easy to follow design suggestions for quick and easy changes to a room or apartment/house. I definitely recommend this a good place to start if you're interested in tinkering with Feng Shui but not sure you want to read a full book or commit a lot of time yet.
Still fairly new to Feng Shui, I read this after the Dummies guide... I liked this book, it's quite practical, but it felt somewhat light overall to me. I don't know what kind of "meat" I was really looking for while reading this, but whatever it was, I didn't find it! Still liked it and applied a couple cures almost immediately.
This book was an awesome discussion of the basics of feng shui. Sure it had some of the "just put a plant in the prosperity corner and your great Aunt will send you a check" business, but on the whole it broke the principles of feng shui without devolving into such madness. I got a lot of great decorating ideas from this book and found it to be a fun read!
Makes it easy and fun to Feng Shui your whole house. I will keep this as a reference guide. I has good decorating ideas and helps you balance types of materials used. I don't know if any of this works but the decorating tips are interesting and functional.

Collins' "Room by Room" guide to Feng Shui is very straight forward, easy to read, and implement. This guide, unlike Collins' previous "Western Guide to Feng Shui," features color photographs to illustrate her points.
