This is a magnum opus of compass-based feng shui. It is a very thorough book and extremely well-illustrated. It might be overwhelming for a beginner, but it's clearly written and could end up being the only compass-school feng shui book that someone would need. Too's books are always recognizable by the unique illustrations (cut paper) and they do get the point across. It's all good.
