Even though this is Wong’s introductory to Feng-Shui, it is quite detailed. Best for those who wish to know more and are serious about Feng-Shui for healing and prosperity. It isn’t just a casual decorator’s book.

the book is fantastic, very pleasant to read and a bundle of information. It’s one of these books that needs to be read over and over to process all the info. I gave 4 stars because I just wish the last few chapters had more information. I think I’m going to get more books from Eva Wong, I love her style of writing and how knowledgeable she is.

This book is one of three I picked up for an overview of the topic. It is a good resource of the history and spiritualism of an ancient subject matter. When paired with my other resources which are more modern day and hands-on based I have a good beginners grasp of the subject. If you just want to rearrange your furniture this might be too deep a book.

For the intermediate user

This book is probably more for the intermediate feng shui user would be my guess. There are more simpler ways to calculate your gua/kua number and also to calculate charts rather than using the complex wheel system in the book. The HoTu combinations also use the facing star and earth/place star, which I suspect is inaccurate. But who knows, feng shui books disagree with each other. Some say use the facing/mountain stars for hotu, some say using the facing, and period/earth/place star.

Best book I’ve found on feng shui

A comprehensive look at the practice of feng shui. Ms. Wong does not ‘dumb down’ the process, while making the subject matter easy to understand. In terms of exploring balance and harmony, this book is a good addition to other high quality Taoist texts of mine. I’ve found this book particularly useful in choosing color. I’ve noticed the corresponding stars provide a good basis for both the underlying color choices and their three-color composition. The teachings seems to relate nicely to how light enters a room. This was a really neat discovery. Although it’s not something I could learn overnight, there have been definitive improvements in how I think about and make decor and design choices. I really love this book.

Excellent Reference on Form School & Flying Star Feng Shui

For readers who are primarily interested in feng shui guidelines for arranging furniture and enhancing good luck sectors of their home, this book will probably prove to be a big disappointment. There is only minimal attention paid to house interiors in this book. However, for anyone with at least an intermediate knowledge of feng shui basics and an interest in pursuing an in depth study of the history of feng shui and the practice of Form School and Flying Star feng shui, this book is a wonderful source of information.

Finally, a clear understanding and a practical guide.

I had been searching for a good feng shui book for months when I found this one. This books is both beautifully written and a very easy read, which is quite rare for an instructional book. The layout of this book is a mastery in itself, and the cross references between chapters are great. Although I had originally planned to skim – or yes maybe skip – some of the chapters, I quickly found myself engrossed. The background information gave me a much clearer understanding of the art of feng shui and a strong foundation for its practice. Often I find teachers of Chinese art forms caught in a trap between a desire to make the art form easier for the Western world to adopt/understand and a desire to stay true to the art form as it should be practiced. In my opinion, Ms. Wong did a masterful job of avoiding this trap. It is at once a very practical, very beautiful guide. Thank you for a wonderful book!!

Unsurpassed, the definitive introduction to the subject

It would be difficult to overestimate the value of this book. Although Feng Shui is a subject which has attracted more than its share of charlatans, the beginner can approach Ms. Wong’s work with the confidence that she doesn’t promise more than she delivers. In a well-written Introduction (which itself is worth the price of the book) she cautions the reader against assuming that this ancient art can be mastered by reading any book, even this one. More than a “how-to” manual, the book places Feng Shui in the religious and cultural context in which it developed, and without which it can neither be practiced nor understood. The reader coming to Feng Shui for the first time has to start somewhere, and I know of no better place than in these pages. Justin Thacker, Los Angeles
