Kwok Man-ho & Joanne O'Brien - Elements of Feng Shui

A fine introduction to very traditional feng shui, containing a healthy smattering of anecdotal stories, both ancient and modern.
On page 3, trigrams are referred to as hexagrams. It's obviously just a slip, becauses they're referred to correctly on page 86.

The information on shapes of houses and properties is quite well-covered. It's only a few paragraphs, but should be ready by anyone buying or building a house.

The land-form drawings are standard, but nothing to rave about.

He makes a most important point on page 7, "Abiding by the guidelines of feng shui is an aid to successful life, but the most influential factor is personal conduct."
