Once a theme, trend, or idea has appeared in the national media, chances are it will soon infiltrate bookstores and influence at least a few metropolitan sophisticates. Feng shui, or the 4,000-year-old Eastern art of creating harmony in interior and exterior design, is no exception. Articles and books on balanced decorating emerged in the early 1990s; now almost every home magazine has boasted a feature or two on the topic. Where former psychotherapist SantoPietro adds to the literature is in her practical applications of feng shui. For one, there's a complete chapter on low-cost^-high-gain design, with such tips as avoiding blank walls and removing sharp edges. Five client stories, including before and after floor plans, are presented in detailed narratives. Charts on colors and properties of gemstones, crystals, and aromatherapy oils, among others, enhance readers' not-so-mystical acquisition of knowledge about this Chinese art. In step with the decade's movement toward home nesting. Barbara Jacobs

Too much of what is out there is what I call "Rabbit Foot" Feng Shui...all about good luck, NOW please! Not this book. She takes a more spiritual approach and you feel, at least I did, the changes happening in you, not just in your furniture arrangement. This is an authentic, well presented, authoritative book on the subject. It is no mistake the Lin Yun wrote the forward to this book.
Feng Shui will help you, even if you only de-clutter, bur I'd do it with this book as a guide. I am back now to get a 3rd copy. It is one of those books I keep lending out and replacing with new copies because I don't want to be without it.
One can easily, methodically study and become proficient at what seems, at first, like an overwhelming concept.
The basic bagua map and explanation are invaluable.
The problem solving section allows one to understand putting the remedies and concepts to practical application.
The cleansing rituals in the book are also helpful and meaningful for anyone who understands doing something with intention.
This is the end-all feng shui book!
