A great book. Practical and down to earth, all the important points needed to know are listed here.
Maybe to some readers the set of rules it contains will seen to be a bit rigid,as an american reviewer claims here. I just would like to make a point on this one-
Feng shui is an ancient technology comprising a certain set of rules that must be followed in order to activate its productivity and acquire good results. If it requires to place a fountain or artificial stream, etc in the North of the garden, then that is what needs to be done. As a person having a huge interest in the topic , i was simply shocked by complaints listed in one of the reviews here - if you do not accept the rules of the game - do not play it! You can not install a stream just anywhere because you want to - this is not Feng Shui! If you just want to put three legged toads and dragons just where YOU want and not according to Feng Shui advise, then that is all they will be - just statues in the garden, so you may as well just use anything - it certainly does not have to be Chinese culture inspired items.
So, if you want to see a result-use Feng Shui the way it has been used for thousands of years.Otherwise it is just a waste of time.
No books will help if you are not willing to comply with the rules.
