Sexist and contradictory, do not buy!
on December 27, 2001
This book provided some simple information about feng shui and maximizing feng shui in the home. However, I found many contradictory points within such a small book. For example, the book discusses trigrams and tells how to set up one for his home, using the front door as the aligning feature. From the instructions, the back of the house is the prime direction, and the front door faces the direction of "Death". It then goes on to say that that area of the house is the worst place for the front door. The section on individual trigrams for different members of the home is sexist with instructions for the father being Chien (energy, determination and persistence) in the study, den, or main bedroom. The mother is K'un (close relationships and obedience)in the kitchen and sewing room. The children are assigned similar trigrams according to their sex. There was useful information on how to remedy bad situations, but this information did not make up for the rest of the book.
