Practical and Realistic

There are at least a dozen books about feng shui on my bookcase. Each expert has their own opinions and to be honest I was ready to give up because the “must dos” were different and contradicted each other. Then I found Cathleen McCandless’ book and wow what a difference! The explanations of why the remedies of the past were used and how they may not be applicable to modern western living were such a help. Her common sense approach is balanced by the obvious respect that she has for the practice and history of feng shui. It’s well written and easy to follow. There are some immediate – inexpensive suggestions that can help you get started making positive changes right away. If you were like me, interested but confused, I would highly recommend giving Feng Shui That Makes Sense a chance.

Best feng shui book, period

This book is a must read for anyone remotely interested in feng shui. I’ve done years of informal research into feng shui because its practicality fascinates me. This is by far my favorite book on the subject. There is a lot of misinformation out there that converts well-meaning people into superstitious and paranoid interior decorators (including me at some points, unfortunately). The effect is counterintuitive to what feng shui is all about, which is living in an environment that optimizes your health. This book addresses all the myths that I’ve come across and re-grounds you in the common sense and natural science that the practice is based on. It also puts feng shui practices into historical context, bringing it to life in important ways. Lastly the author gives really interesting, incredible (and sometimes comical) examples from her experience as a consultant. In addition to helping me nurture my home with more confidence, I can now better explain some of my interior decorating decisions to my husband in a way that appeals to his reason. Two thumbs up!

Easy to read & apply yet not fluffy!

This book is perfect for us. We’ve had others but they were so confusing and dictatorial. Each home has different people, needs, and contents. There is a huge difference between a house, a condo, and an apartment. It gets hot where we live so facing and windows are very important. This author gets the mix of rules and circumstances together in ways that are easy to understand and apply. We’re buying our first home, a condo, and no one else puts much effort into subtle efforts to enhance the flow. We can’t rip up the walk or alter the front door. But we now have ideas that our home owner’s association will allow. If we get our first bid we have a horrible problem since the front door almost opens directly into a bathroom!!! That one is not in the book but we have ideas for this as well based on what will feel right and still allow us to use the toilet. This alone is good news if you are like us and can’t afford an expensive consultant and find the other books confusing or unusable.

A perfect companion and guide

It’s easy to get discouraged when reading through the range of feng shui guides out there. It can seem that they contradict one another in their advice on best practice. Some are more complex than I needed and others way too “easy” to apply to be realistic. This is the book that has me really fired up about practicing this fascinating art. It is explained in a way that makes sense for the culture we live in, while not losing sight of its essential origins, and respecting the fact that there are still mysteries that we cannot fathom about energy and how things manifest.

I have recently been reading several books on feng-shui, and noticed a real difference in the approach of each author. This author approaches the topic in a sensible and practical way. Less emphasis on specific rules and traditions – though she offers some interesting side-bars on how and why such rules may have existed – and more common-sense reasoning on why feng shi works. I would recommend this title for those a bit hesitant on this topic since it introduces concepts in a manner that is comfortable and inviting. Think interior decorating rather than serious study. Examples and stories make this an interesting read. Not for the serious or traditional student, but for those looking to bring some feng shui into their everyday environment.

Hands down, the best book for practical Feng Shui decorating for todays living!

My daughter asked for a Feng Shui book for her birthday. I looked over MANY different ones before deciding on this one. It’s great! I know because I have been enjoying reading it with her and applying many of the principles to our decor. I love that it is much more practical than many I looked at. Some of the old concepts of Feng Shui just aren’t practical for modern day America. From keeping our tv in the living room as a practical focal point to more modern ideas of the bathrooms energy and function, this book finds the perfect balance to create what I call practical Feng Shui. This is by far the best one I’ve found on Feng Shui decorating. It is easy to read and the topics are organized easily for quick referencing. The book is very thorough and well written. I appreciate the examples throughout the book as well. Clear and concise, practical and in depth. I feel I found the right book choice for my daughters wants and needs. Thanks!

…and you DO NEED to read this! Feng shui gets such a bad rep because of all the nonsensical misinformation that’s out there- this book does a FANTASTIC job of getting to the core of REAL feng shui, and it does it in such a clear and easily understandable manner that you can start applying it to your own living space immediately. I had heard all kinds of nutty things about feng shui before, but boy am I glad that I came across this book and discovered what feng shui REALLY is about! It has given me a whole new perspective on life and truly enhanced it in so many ways. I don’t normally write online reviews, (in fact this is my first one on amazon), but I felt compelled to share this- this really is good information that can improve people’s lives in a major way. And it’s NOT weird or esoteric!

Over exceeded my expectations. This. Ok is awesome. It’s very informative and yet a simple read. It has forever changed the way I look at my home’s interior design and home accessories, including plants….as well as offices/business. It’s truly phenomenal reading material. I browsed every book there is on this topic and I suggest this one.

Nice Approach, Very Sensible

Very nice intro book to feng shui. The author takes a more practical, less superstitious approach to feng shui, relating it more to how certain environments make the human animal feel rather than relying on “lucky this” or “unlucky that” to stake a claim. She sticks with what decisions and factors make us comfortable, safe, and happy versus uneasy, threatened, and miserable. An easy read with good tips. I wound up skipping lots of the anecdotes, which are always hard to write without seeming self-congratulatory, I guess. I’ve taken some of her suggestions to heart and have actually experienced some positive results. Would recommend to beginners who want to know what feng shui is all about.
