This book was of great interest to me as a new home owner. However, Feng Shui is presented in a somewhat biased manner, as a cure-all for healing lives. Certainly, our environments can be places of healing and nurturing energy, but the bottom line is personal preference and common sense. (in life, as well as interior decorating!) Each person has their own likes and dislikes. For example, many people enjoy having high ceilings and an open floor-plan, while others prefer more "yin" environments, with lower ceilings and dimmer, smaller rooms. Socrates said most wisely, "All things in moderation." I still believe that Feng Shui needs more westernization for it to be practical, useful, and accessible to the average American or European

I found this book very helpful. It was originally reviewed by a student of mine for a college class which led me to buy Collins' other book "Feng Shui Room by Room". I like the other book even better (I would give it 5 stars). These books bring the concepts into focus for use in a western setting. I transformed two major parts of my house within the first week and it was life changing. In fact I was able to make some powerful changes the first night. Also I didn't spend a lot of money but rather used things I already owned and loved that were either in storage or in the wrong place. I found myself loving my house for the first time in many years instead of constantly thinking about moving.

Even if you don't necessarily believe in the precepts of Feng Shui, Ms. Collins does an excellent job of making you look at your environment with new eyes. With her help you can find things about your house and surroundings that may be bothering you subconciously, be making your environment subtly uncomfortable or even dangerous. If you do wish to know about the form school of Feng Shui, I can't think of a better introduction. This book is very readable and entertaining, while being useful to anyone who cares to try to apply it to their surroundings. Not much more you could ask for.

This was an easy to understand book perhaps a little too simplistic. I changed the money area of my house and immediately cash began appearing. I thought I'd get a raise or two which I did but I did not expect cash to appear in different locations around the house so far about eighty dollars.

Terah explains the key concepts of feng shui, without making them too complicated. It is both thorough and readable. Highly recommended
