Kirsten Lagatree - Feng Shui: Arranging Your Home to Change Your Life

This book's concise and lucid, covering a wide range of topics without going so deeply as to bog down a beginner. There's a lot of huge, wide margins and blank pages, which always indicate to me that the publisher is trying to give the impression that the book is larger than it actually is. Although it doesn't aim to be comprehensive, it does touch on a lot of different aspects. The brief history of feng shui in the introduction is one of the best I've seen anywhere. I especially liked the unique suggestion to use a weathervane to disburse shar chi coming toward a house. She makes it clear that much of her advice comes from Johndennis Govert, and you can't beat that as far as I'm concerned.
