Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Skinner, founder of Feng Shui for Modern Living magazine and the author of numerous books on feng shui, looks at homes and public buildings, primarily in Asia and London, that exemplify the principles of feng shui. The majority of the book contains photographs and descriptions of buildings: some, like Senta Saujana in Malaysia, have been designed using feng shui, while others, such as the Daily Express Building in London, were designed by architects who unwittingly incorporated feng shui into their design. For each, Skinner analyzes how the building was planned and provides floor plans to explain how the energy flows to the benefit of the inhabitants. Look to Sarah Rossbach's Interior Design with Feng Shui for practical advice; here you will find instead real-life examples of how feng shui has been employed and interpreted. For large interior design collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
