Review

"Anyone who has looked into the ancient Chinese art of placement may not think it can be made easy, but William Spear has managed to put together a book that is user-friendly, while still respecting the deeper aspects and implications of profound science. Feng Shui (pronounced fung-schway, literally wind and water) uses the principles of energy flow to organize the placement of buildings and the elements within them into patterns that accord with that natural flow. Advocates of the art claim that living in harmony with feng shui principles fosters prosperity and happiness, both at home and at work. Feng Shui Made Easy gives not just practical suggestions for analyzing and altering your environment, but teaches intuitive feng shui, so that you can learn to trust your feelings about your surroundings. -- Yoga Journal November/December 1995

From the Author

The major distinction of my work is being able to see and apply feng shui as an architecture of consciousness. Most other books are concerned with proper placement -- an essential element, of course. But unless we change ourselves from the inside out, where we put that desk or what color we paint our front door has far less impact on our lives. I take care to look at both perspectives.

The revised edition of this book was actually more challenging to write than the initial work. Because feng shui is a "living art" it became imperative for me to look back at my experiences and amend many of the sections of this new book. I read through each word, taking special care to communicate more deeply and thoroughly many key points which were not developed in the first edition. 

What is especially important about the revised edition are the three new chapters on Health, Children and Ecology. My experience in the field of health and personal transformation made it possible to share many previously "hidden" correlations between feng shui and individual health. Similarly, applying this body of knowledge to children's environments is another area overlooked in most books, so the new chapter on this subject should be read by parents who want the best for their growing kids! Finally, feng shui and ecology can go hand in hand; as such, the new chapter on this subject looks back to Chinese history as well as to the future for insight and guidance.

Format: Paperback
I read this book over and over again. This is a book you can grow with as your understanding of feng shui developes. The author warns that when you put cures into place, be prepared for changes in your life, often within one phase of the moon.Well within two weeks, my sweetheart got a promotion, and I recently have been introduced to some folks who will invest in ventures that I have had planned for some time. My wind was in the toilet, and now that this is cured, our lives will never be the same. I only have one book (so far) on Feng Shui. From reading the reviews on others, it seems to be the right choice. Certanly if you plan to only have one book, this is it. I now see the world all around me in a new and invisible way. I can see were engery will flow and were it will die. In buildings, on peoples desks, in their homes. Sure enough, the prosporous have (by chance?) good feng shui in place, and the mediocor and loosers do not.I can look at a house and tell you if the ocupants are health or not. I can feel it just by looking around, it is that powerful. It is the map to natures vibrations, and you can either flow with it, or swim up stream, its that simple. Well, you know I'm sold on Feng Shui, because I can see the evidence. Through this book alone my life has changed. Order it NOW. No I do not work for Amozon, infact i bought it else were! Go for it!

The more I work with feng shui, the more I realize that "inner" feng shui cannot be seen apart from "outer" feng shui. Many people, however, don't consider inner feng shui in their work or their books; I've seen very few that do. This is one of those that do, and I'm happy to recommend it.

My first copy of Feng Shui Made Easy has many highlighted areas, ink-written comments, and folded pages to which I return to again and again. Each time, finding deep wisdom hidden within the simplicity with which this book was written. Feng Shui Made Easy serves as an essential foundational tool for anyone seeking an introduction to this fascinating subject and way of understanding life and it's interdependent workings. I cannot recommend it highly enough --

Reading Feng Shui Made Easy was the best investment of time I made in my life. William spear has woven the principles of Feng Shui with practical aspects of everyone's various areas of life. The book teaches how to do self reflection analysis, prioritize the areas of weaknesses and gives us the opportunity to experience self transformation with strong will power.
Feng Shui Made easy unfolds this mystical science in a layman's terminology, giving interesting case histories, illustrations, diagrams and inspirational quotes from world known philosophers in the beginning of each chapter. This book of traditional wisdom for modern living also includes various cures, the role of intuition,and the placements in workplace as well as at home. Feng Shui in the body is explained too, with emphasis on good diet and macrobiotic way for good health and longevity.
A combination of all above in one neat volume makes it a Feng Shui guide in a class of its own when compared to other available books which are either too basic or totally Interior Design oriented coffe table volumes.
William spear's background in Feng Shui, natural architecture, health issues and his numerous television and radio program appearances and seminars has made him one of the world's leading teachers and Feng Shui Consultants in the west.
I have benefitted from this book immencely from its tranforming power, showing me how to live in harmony and balance whilst allowing me to reconize the real values of our "being" in this ever changing universe.

William Spear has an immense talent for translating profound ancient eastern wisdom into a clear and direct tool for modern life. His straightforward self-evaluation exercise is particularly eye opening.
Feng Shui Made Easy has made a large effect on my life. It promtped me into a dedicated study of Feng Shui. With my Feng Shui eyes, I find that my environment is a constant mirror for my inner life and growth.

Mr Spear writes the way "how to" writers should write - and rarely do! I thoroughly enjoyed being educated - not something I often admit. Let it just be said that, after reading this, a lot of changes took place in my home

William Spear has done an superb job in taking a complex, mainly eastern system, and translating it into western, laymens language so that all may understand and participate.
I have had my house feng shui'd by an expert, when I first moved in, without really understanding what he was doing or why. Having read William Spear's book, I now feel confident to implement some changes myself. A job well done!

I purchased Feng Shui Made Easy by William Spear because Karen Kingston, of whom I am an avid fan, named this book as her preferred reference for gaining further understanding of feng shui. I found this book to be excellent. In essence, both William Spear and Karen Kingston advocate that if one gets started and cleans out all the clutter in one's home and/or workplace, keeping only what is necessary to use and the items you love for any reason, and if one physically cleans one's home and/or workplace, there will then most probably be a natural flow into more order, purpose and effectiveness in one's life. I especially like the fact that William Spear is very aware of the differences in cultures, family traditions and personalities and so encourages us to follow our intuition, rather than any superstition, in the practice of feng shui in our home and/or workplace.
