Practical Feng Shui You Can Actually Implement
on July 18, 2011
Disclaimer: I am not a big believer in Feng Shui. Really. And that's OK. We don't all need to believe the same things. I do, however, like to support neighborhood businesses and people, and I happened in to one of Salvatore's book signings a few blocks from my house in San Francisco. The place was packed, and many of the people there were past clients of Salvatore's who mentioned how much working with him had changed their homes, if not their lives. I don't know the "why" behind all of this, but it seems the "how" was Feng Shui and Salvatore, and that both have helped a lot of people.
I purchased and read the book as a way to open my mind to what I'd heard about at the book signing and learned a great deal about Feng Shui in a concise, practical, clearly written format. I skimmed other books on the subject at the book signing location, and let me tell you, most of those were just way too "out there" and "wah wah" for me to understand what on earth I would even do to begin to practice Feng Shui. I couldn't determine what to do first and why. Salvatore's book, on the other hand, is in a very how-to format that focuses on the individual within the practice of Feng Shui. Most chapters have a work sheet style format included, to help the reader focus on his or her needs and space, and then focus on the changes they want to make. The book provides a personal toolkit, not just the story of Feng Shui. This is a very concise, nicely executed, substantial book while being easy to follow and not overwhelming with the enormity of Feng Shui practice.
