This book makes Feng Shui much easier than any other book that I have tried to read. If you've been looking for a book that will guide you step by step, this is it. It has so much information pack in it, I haven't been able to put it down! I highly recommend it to everyone, so much so that I have purchased several copies as gifts for friends and colleagues.

If only I'd purchased this book sooner. Believe me, there is more clear and practical information in this book then in the many workshops I've attended, costing me hundreds of dollars.
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.

Although easily digested, this book is full of fluff! The book is rife with empty remedies. If you're skeptical, look at some of the rituals that the author touts. He incorporates Tibetan mantras (Feng shui is Chinese in origin, not Tibetan) and says that a powerful ritual incorporates sinibar. Sinibar is a red powder that contains mercury. You'd have to be insane to think that this "effective" ritual is good for your home! If you're only looking to do some kind of ritual to turn around your luck, go ahead and buy the book for the placebo effect. Otherwise, take a few minutes and do some research on the Internet.

It is very easy reading (thank you), entertaining (more gratitude) and very helpful. The book has plenty of diagrams and detailed steps allowing me (the reader) to follow along with ease. Finally, after many purchases, I have found the Feng Shui book you can actually start using within several minutes, what a joy! I learned so much in such a short amount of time and I have already benefited from your teaching at my job with amazing effects on my work. My colleagues at work were all amazed at the difference. Be careful though, once your colleagues start flipping through this book, it may be a while before you get it back. I keep a second copy at home!

Format: Paperback
The author goes on and on without getting to the point for 90% of this book. What I like about most Dummies books is they are entertaining enough to keep you reading. This one is an exception, it just never winds up or gets going. The author could have written this book in 20 pages easy. He repeats the same stuff over and over again yet many times never explains his point. This book seems more like an avertisement for the authors "consulting" services than an information source. This is the only book in 10 years that I've taken back for a refund. The information the author does present is just silly. Even the die-hard Feng Shui people in this forum cant seem to like this book. I'd say concentrate on your cleanliness and diet if you want to enhance your life. Then, sure go ahead and read about Feng Shui for interest sake but forget this title. Theres nothing in it. I'll give it 2 stars for the picture of the author and his "master". They both made me laugh at least.

No loupan, no feng shui. As simple as that can be, feng shui is about physics, intuition and scientific data that corroborates the effects of the application. Coordinanting the right angles to create a contrast with the energy we give and receive. In this book the author does not corroborate any of his data, and assumes that feng shui is the same for everyone, dividing areas of the home in different areas of prosperity. I have certaintly learn to be more carefull of what a buy, and understand the unreliable information in the market about feng shui. Feng shui does work when a scientific approach is attained to fulfull harmony for the environment and myself, but this book is far from been scientific or systematic in any way.

As a new student of Feng Shui, I found this book along with D.D. Kennedy's Feng Shui Tips For a Better Life to be extremly informative & easy to understand. Having read 9 books, I feel the most comfortable with the Ba Gua method--but then that's a highly personal choice.
