I've always been curious about feng shui, especially about the flow of chi through living spaces. Many of the books are stale and not things I'm interested in reading (try this! Spice up your life by doing this!). This book shows how to create energy flow within the home and shows beautiful photographic examples as well.

It may be what Prof Brian Cox calls 'wu-wu' but its good quality, well written wu-wu.
