Partly, Feng Shui is using our common sense. Clearing out clutter, getting rid of old and unused items, creating a more peaceful environment. Doesn’t it feel great when we begin getting rid of clutte. .it opens up space, makes us feel lighter, and we actually start to think better. But, of course, Feng Shui takes it much further than that. There are visible and invisible energies which have an effect on you.

Excellent pictures and examples of some upscale houses with a few cures to remedy bad feng shui, but not a great book as far as covering a wide range of home situations and solutions, and gives just a quick explanation of the basics of feng shui. It's a great deal used for under 5 dollrs, but you will need to read other books as well to gain a greater knowledge of feng shui.

For example there is a chapter about a great house on acreage overlooking the Hudson river. It's interesting, but not easily applicable to the average 1/4 acre lot and home. Chapters about a comprehensive plan for the average 1/4 lot and home would be more useful to most readers.

I had already found a copy of this at a used book store - liked it so much I bought this one as a gift for a friend. If you are a believer in feng shui, this is a different take on how to incorporate into your life/home. (I have many of Lillian Too's books - also good.) If you're not a believer (yet) you might try some of Mr. Chin's ideas and see how they improve your life.

I've read many books on Feng Shui, but this one by R.D. Chin is amazing. With a very didactic approach and real beautiful photos, master Chin conducts his readers teaching every important aspect of his consultations. My favorite was the analysis of a Frank Lloyd Wright project. His sensibility provided the new owners with relevant inputs. I recommend to any Feng Shui student or consultant to have this volume as a book of reference.
This is one of those visually lovely books. Well made, photos are perfect, colors and home are sumptuous. This is a Black Hat Feng Shui derived book as mentioned in the introduction which gives you a "family" or homey type feel as pictures of collegues and the authors ancestral lineage picture is also presented.

The book is basically about case scenarios with spaces that present typical and specific issues that you can find almost anywhere. The author is chinese as well as both and architect and interior designer. So, the rich look of things is not so surprising nor the chinese lore and cultural applications which have been incorporated with Black Hat along with a lot of other things which are to themself like chinese culture are whole subjects. The author as he is involved with other cultures in this book..mostly Europe/American...neverthless has many example of cross cultural additions to the Feng Shui applications such as things from other parts of the world that can be incorporated into the picutue as well.

You can get a lot of tips on how you can furnish your home the interior design perspective. Today thrift shops are all the rave and with a few dollars and creative/common sense you can do the same as the big bucks do if you like. Add in the Feng Shui principles and now you have a reason and purpose behind why, how, where, and what you choose to decorate. Most of the focus is on addressing problems with the space and the Ba-kua area needs.

Overall, this is not a first or beginners book and its not pretending to be a primer. It also has floorplans..some are juvenille and hardly understandable while others that are much better quality. At times it seems to go on and on in the descriptions of the in interior design details of places. This might interest some , bore, or agitate readers who might find it irrelevant. Its a good book once you've spent more vaulable time getting some introduction and comfort with Feng Shui. Its ideal for people with lavish spaces with outdoor or split level situations. This book is a good adjunct, a good leisure reading Feng Shui book. This book is also good experience for those who are afraid to explore and be creative with what they can do.
