This author, who studied Oriental medicine & became a therapist, tells you how to use the Eight Directions school of Feng Shui which he states is "a Japanese development of the traditional Chinese compass-based" method. This is very different from other schools I have read about. He tells you a little about just about everything. He mentions what are the best materials to use, what foods you should eat, how you should cook the food, which direction your head should face when you sleep if you have trouble sleeping, etc. The big difference is that he does not give you cures as you go to fix problems. If you are not just starting your home and can not afford to throw everything out and start all over, this book is probably not the best book on the subject to start with. Also, this book centers on your personal chi and what affects it, not redecorating to get the right balance in your home ASAP. Using this method you have to check directions, consider your own numbers, and plan to redo it every year.
The books Feng Shui For Dummies and Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life explain in more detail and show you how to use Feng Shui better than this book for me. Of course, neither book is using the Eight Directions school. Getting too much information on too many subjects at once makes the task seem too big to handle. You can get your house in balance first and then consider your personal chi and make any needed changes later.
I am amazed at how much Feng Shui there is and find it fascinating. I do not live to this totally but think some of it's organization is good and good for people. I haven't finished book yet but have enjoyed realizing my home is rather Feng Shui and it is truly a comfortable home. LOTS of great history, information, different versions/beliefs are listed, easy reading/format, nice pictures.
Simon takes us on a journey through chi, yin and yang, five elements and the trigrams before going onto practical ways to improve the energy of a home. The nine ki section is clear and easy to use with full charts. This book is a lovely introduction to feng shui and gives the subject greater depth and understanding if you have already read a few feng shui books.
