This book introduces Feng Shui in a manner that allows you to get right in and play with it. There's no need to rush out and buy things you can't find, although I did spend some money changing color schemes. The people in my office laughed a lot, but took it a little more seriously after I placed a frog at the entry door and business started booming. Now even the non-believers are careful to see that he's placed correctly! This is a great beginners book and more useful than others I've bought since.

I've used the practical info from this book in my present home with great success. I've compensated for a cut-off travel corner and love corner. Dare I say my marriage is happier and I'm actually getting tired of traveling so much? I also placed a water fountain near the front door (career area) and our business is going gangbusters. Coincidence? I don't know but even my pragmatic engineer husband believes. Now I'm building a new house on a piece of land and I'm using Feng Shui principles in the design. I did note that my architect uses the same principles unconsciously such as positioning the house according to prevailing winds and direction of the sun. This shows me that Feng Shui uses down to earth design principles that are timeless. Highly recommended as an introduction to Feng Shui.

Anyone looking for the latest white-folk appropriation of a traditional culture need look no further than this New Age trash. It's not bad enough that the material SUCKS, they have to dress it up with more New Age-y psychobabble. Perfect for people who don't think clearly and can't get out of their own way, or that person in your life you want to freak out entirely. They will really think you need to beam back to the Mothership if you fall for this tripe. It was not written as the result of any knowledge of Asian culture, customs, or any scholarship about the subject matter. IT WAS ALL MADE UP BY THE AUTHOR(s). Does that make you want to rush out and buy it?

The Western Guide was the first book I read on the subject of Feng Shui. It was such a clear treatise on a very complex subject I was inspired to study with Ms. Collins at her Western School of Feng Shui in San Diego, CA (advertised in the back of the book). As a result of her training program, I have been practicing Feng Shui professionally for almost two years now. The Western Guide to Feng Shui did indeed create harmony and prosperity in my life! Since that time I have read many other Feng Shui books, but Terah's method still rates at the top for clarity and western practicality. VERY highly recommended - the best book for those new to the subject.

Okay, I'll admit I was seduced by the subtitle, ". . . Creating Balance, Harmony and Prosperity in Your Environment." I need all the balance, harmony and prosperity I can get.

Feng Shui (that's FUNG SHWAY to us mortals) is the ancient Chinese art of placement (does anyone but me notice there's never a modern Chinese art?). I came from the 1950's Irish-American art of placement: "Use a coaster! Don't lean on your elbows! Get your feet off the coffee table!"

The idea of Feng Shui is that by correct placement of objects around my environment, I will maximize the 'Chi' or energy in and around my physical world. Hey, I believe this. In college I rearranged furniture in my dorm room every month. I continued this even after I married a man who, given the option, would nail down furniture. These days I'm too tired to change the television channel after everyone has gone to bed. In this book there's a Chinese saying: "If you want to change your life, move 27 things in your house." I do this every morning trying to figure out where my son left his gloves, his hat, or his lunch box. My life hasn't changed yet.

The author claims that "Relaxation, rejuvenation, and recreation are the three primary functions of a home." The three primary functions of my house are collapse, incoherence, and get-ready-for-the-next-round-of-laundry. The front door is the gaping mouth, where all the chi enters the home. All doors are entrances for chi, which is why doorways should never be blocked and should open freely. I haven't been able to open a door in my house without banging into something since 1988. I'm in chi debt until the millenium and then some.

Halfway through the book I learned my rooms are laid out poorly, my bedrooms in the wrong place, and my blocked doors are draining me of energy. She didn't mention what stepping on those little green army guys does to your chi. It can't be good.

Ms Collins says for optimal chi, my environment should be clutter-free, contain my treasures and photos of my loved ones, fresh flowers and natural crystals to circulate chi to energy-low areas. I was getting energized just reading this book. Hey, I could throw some stuff out, rearrange the furniture, put out my crystals and burn scented candles. Maybe there's something to this. Ancient Chinese arts have to be based on something.

I was telling my husband the highlights of all this when our eight-year-old son came into the room. In quick succession he argued about his homework, his chores, his sister, and tried to negotiate a later bedtime. When he left I slumped over in my chair. My husband looked at me and asked, "Does the book say anything about living with the 'Anti-Chi'?"

This is a wonderful explanation of the philosophy and easy-to-understand, practical, application of "form school" feng shui (the school/method of feng shui most popular in the U.S.). After reading probably 10 other feng shui books, it was one of the first that was clear yet in-depth with explanations to support the advice given. What is called the "form school" (also called black hat sect feng shui), as is explained in this book, is one of two basic feng shui approaches. The other approach is the traditional "compass school" approach, for which I recommend the Complete Idiot's Guide to Feng Shui. Out of all of the feng shui books I've read -- these two are many steps above the rest to understand the two basic feng shui approaches.

This tape series is the follow on to the original piece by the author. What an excellent way for readers to learn about Feng Shui - while driving the long commute home or at home. Terah Collins covers the basics in a clear, concise, and informative way. I finally understand the history behind this Eastern practice of building and maintaining harmonious and peaceful environmental surroundings. The workbook clearly compliments topics on tape. Especially useful is tape 5 which covers the room by room outline for emphasizing each type of chi treasure that is part of the bagua in one's home or office. My home has already become a more inviting and peaceful place to live!

I found the book to be useful in explaining the elements and giving examples for balancing elements in living spaces. Maybe this isn't the greatest explanation the the traditional Chinese practices and philosophies, but it gave me some good ideas. Psychosomatic? Maybe. But who cares, as long as it has a positive effect? I could have done without the testimonials.

I have been searching for an author who can get you started with Feng Shui and Ms. Collins does that! You don't have to have prior knowledge to be able to put some of the suggestions to use immediately. As a professional in the natural healing industry, I find Feng Shui is a great compliment to anyones path to physical and emotional wellness.

This book gives a logical explanation of the theory of Feng Shui and Case studies to specifically explain how it can change lives. No compasses or silly superstitions, just real stuff you can use (without having to move every couple of years so your door face the right direction like those compass schools lead you to believe.)
