Creating a home out of a vast, empty space can be challenging enough but for most single men, who may be considered 'domestically challenged', this is a task of herculean proportions that, sadly, many of us are simply not up to. Decor, lighting, colors ( swatches!? ) and other terms of design are some type of bizarre foreign language that have made more than one good man throw up his hands in exasperation ( and surrender! ) after just one afternoon of shopping for home-goods and the like. I mean, what is a 'valance' and why do I need one? Well, what " Feng Shui for Dummies " has taught this aspiring home owner is a sense of self and how you can use that acute awareness to create surroundings that are unique to you as an individual.... yet also create an enviroment that 'works' in tandem with who you are, to promote self, prosperity and ultimately inner peace. And while I'm aware that some of this sounds slightly 'new age' it does, to some degree, actually work very well.Read more ›
In trying to learn feng shui, I have been frustrated by the lack of clarity surrounding this subject. Other books I own, review a lot of history and theory, but lack when it comes down to implementation or assume that you know more about the subject then is actually written in the book. Not this book.
Feng Shui for Dummies is well written, has humor and leads you step-by-step in each situation, just what a do-it-yourself book is intended to do.
This book does what it is suppose to do, teaches the novice how to implement basic feng shui one step at a time. HOORAH!
If your the kind of person that purchases a do-it-yourself book to get things done, not to be bogged down with theory then this is the book for you.
