This little book does provide an overview of feng shui, but it lacks any focus or any detail. After you read it, you'll know a teeny bit about feng shui -- you need lots of wind chimes to keep the chi moving, you need to illuminate dark corners, you need ties bells & prisms on red cords & distribute them around the house, you need to use your stove frequently if you want to be wealthy. Many of the tips seem to be designed to bring unrestricted movement, to free up blockages. That's the good part. They annoying part is there are eight bazillion tips on how to increase prosperity -- painting your office door green (the color of money in some cultures), painting your office door black (the color of money in other countries), painting your office door red (lucky color, attracts fortune), painting your office gray, blue or green, decorating your office with fabric that combines eight colors or patterns in the design (because "eight" is the number of business and finance) putting yellow flowers in your kitchen, cleaning out your stove, refrigerator, under your kitchen sink. You read a chapter & there are tips on using every color of the rainbow, and incorporating numbers for a variety of reasons (two of this, four of that, nine goldfish, three bells, etc.) that you don't come away with any specific tips. If you followed all of the tips, your home would be a multicolored, cluttered mess, with wood & metal & water & wind chimes everywhere you look.
I gave this book to a friend of mine, who actually knows a great deal about Feng Shui, and she thought it was adorable.
It doesn't go far into depth (which could be a good or a bad thing, depending on what you are looking for), but it is a fun introduction and the first chapter gives an informative introduction into the whys and hows of Feng Shui.
It's a great little gift! I really enjoyed it.
