Whether or not you believe in the mystical aspect of Feng Shui and other such philosophies (I personally do not), it is obvious that our physical surroundings have a profound ability to affect our emotional well-being in every imaginable sense. Modern interior spaces face an epidemic of noise and light pollution, clutter, banality, and numerous other stressors that have never before faced humanity. Unfortunately, many people have trouble coping with these aspects of their environment, whether they realize it or not.
Many negative, stressful aspects of modern life can be greatly diminished by incorporating the principles of Feng Shui into your home, and "The Complete Guide to Feng Shui Crystals" is a fantastic introduction one aspect of feng shui that everyone can get started with right away: using leaded crystals to enhance even the darkest corners of your home.
Overall, a must-read for Feng Shui enthusiasts and beginners (and skeptics!) alike.
PS: Don't be fooled by its small stature when compared to other books of this nature. Feng Shui is about reducing clutter, and Perrin's background as a professional newspaper and magazine columnist enabled her to fit an entire, well-researched reference volume into a concise, "don't-leave-home-without-it" pocketbook.
