Eh. If Feng Shui really worked I'd be rich - the only thing that I really get out of Feng Shui is how to arrange furniture better. I used to be an interior design student, so I usually stuck to Feng Shui for placement tips.
Not practical.

One of many similar books on Feng Shui, that includes activating sectors. I would recommend if get it, then together with "Complete Idiot Guide to Feng Shui", much more complex book, that describes specifics of the books like this, in my understanding.

Too much history and theory, too little practical applications, and even those that were given are useless for me. Like at p. 80, if the toilet is located in the wrong place, stop using it, immediately. Huh?

It seems that it was more catered to the
I checked this out from my library for some decorating ideas, but that was only a small part of it. Most of the book goes into theory about why Feng Shui works and how to use it. I was pretty confused until I got to the chapters on how to apply the theory. That's when if finally started to come together.

Although I don't really believe most of the theory - it sounds too much like astrology to me - I did find some good decorating tips. I appreciated the ideas about softening corners, arranging fur
I don't really get feng shui. I borrowed this from one of my mom's co-workers years ago, and it's an interesting idea I might have to study further at some point. As an environmentally sensitive person, I definitely understand the value of pleasing arrangements. I just remember that I was with her until she started saying that I shouldn't have bookshelves in my bedroom because they shoot poison arrows at me, or something.

This is a good choice for someone who, like me, never read a Feng Shui book and wanted to learn about authentic Chinese Feng Shui. Since creating good Feng Shui usually also creates nice aesthetics, I'm certainly going to put some things into practice. My main goal is to create a comfortable and attractive home, and I'll consider it a bonus if doing so directs a little more good luck into my life.

I like Feng Shui. It works for me. The same things that I don't like about my house, or that made me feel uncomfortable, are the items that need to be corrected according to Feng Shui principles! Make little changes and wait-the idea is balance!
