Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Jayme Barrett traces her interest in Feng Shui to a Feng Shui consultation that her mother gave her in 1995. In the years since, she has studied this 3000-year-old Chinese art of placement with such a deep commitment that it became not only her vocation, but a gift she wants to share. Her Feng Shui Your Life accomplishes that task admirably; its first edition sold more than 100,000 copies and this new and updated edition promises to spread her energy-balancing message further. A succinct, attractive introduction to a much-misunderstood art.

    A book full of beauty and joy

    I read a lot of feng shui books and websites, but I couldn't make feng shui - or my life - work for me. When I concentrated on Jayme Barrett's beautiful Feng Shui Your Life, I found clarity. This book is complete. Covering the depth and breadth of feng shui from the inside out, Jayme's thorough understanding of energy makes my efforts fun and amazingly enlightening. But best of all, it works! So I gladly decluttered the other books (and that silly money toad) and follow Jayme's teaching exclusively. I am thrilled with the daily insights as well as the infusion of revitalizing energy in my life. This is one of those rare, truly life-transforming books, and I'm a five-star fan! Thank you, Jayme, for bringing beauty and joy back to my life!

    Not a good product for Nook

    The book may be OK but your blood pressure will be elevated by the time it has loaded on the nook. it will not load on the older Nook's and is probably a better hard copy....

    Clear, funny, and informative

    I breezed through this book in a week in bits and pieces. It's such an easy read... but it is packed with great and extremely useful information. It covers the very basics and goes into very good detail, room by room. Loved it!

    Accessible and Commonsense Guidance for the Western Home

    I purchased this book in January after living happily and comfortably in an almost empty apartment in Japan for a year and then returning home to a house filled with completely unnecessary clutter. I went from feeling free and energized and healthy and powerful (in Japan) to feeling overwhelmed and boxed in and stagnant and depressed (in my US home). My junk weighed me down and within a week I knew it would keep me from moving forward in my life. This book gave me the blueprint to begin transforming my home to be the graceful, welcoming, calming place I have always wanted it to be. (I took Jayme's BNU class this summer to learn some more and I will also recommend not just this class but BNU classes in general. Being a part of a class has helped me to get active in many areas of my life!) I have made a few simple enhancements to my home which cost me nothing and it is now a joy to wake up in the morning. My main activity so far has been the process of de-cluttering. To clear out the junk - the useless things with only negative memories that I kept due to some unexplained need to hang onto possessions - this process has freed me in a way I could not have imagined. This is a beautiful book - the photographs are gorgeous and the spirit of it is rejuvenating. Even if you only thumb through it from time to time it will inspire you. If you wish to go further it has the steps you can take with a bit of effort and an open heart. Thank you Jayme for challenging me to step out of my complacency and take charge of my life!

    Good feng Shui Primer

    I enjoyed this Feng Shui book and was inspired to get rid of some clutter and add some plants and a water fountain as a result of the reading. I was able to incorporate some of the tips with my work as an interior designer. Really nice illustrations and well written.

    The Doorway to a new way of being you

    I am new to Feng Shui I saw this course, on BNU, and thought it might be interesting. I bought Jayme's book Feng Shui your life. What I found, in the book, far exceeded my expectations as a new comer to Feng Shui. Jayme has found a way, in her book, to demonstrate the mindset of Feng Shui. She brings it to live and makes it easy for you to bring Feng Shui into your life. It's as if she is reaching out from the book to touch you. The book is very attractively put together, it is done with style and grace in the Feng Shui methodology. I recommend this book to beginner or veteran, it has an energy of it¿s own that reaches out and touches you. Every page unfolds to reveal a world that has been waiting for you. Natalie - A Feng Shui're for Life thanks to Jayme and her wonderful book. Spreading Pink Light to all.

    Absolutely wonderful!

    This book has changed my life. I bought the book because I wanted some home decorating ideas. The book turned out to be much, much more than that. It helped to understand why I have clutter in my life and how it has been hindering me from achieving my goals. Ever since I cleared the clutter from my home (which was hard because I'm a pack rat)and enhanced each of the centers, everything in my life has turned around. I can feel the positive energy flowing through my home. I obtained a good job opportunity without hardly trying my husband and I have shifted from the brink of separation to a real loving and understanding relationship money has been okay but that's because my kids' room is in my money center and they have a tough time keeping it clean my family life has been great and my home is a beautiful place I can be proud of. The suggestion of a manifestation board was a great idea. I wake up to it every morning, and I know why I have to get up and get going. Buy this book and Feng Shui your life as soon as possible.

    The ebook for the second edition of this does not exist at least

    The ebook for the second edition of this does not exist at least not here at Barnes and Nobles. I made the mistake of purchasing it and having to wait a week for the refund.

    Love this book!

    As soon as I started implementing some of the principles in the book, clearing up my foyer of shoes, coats, and umbrellas; changing my dining room and living room around, adding fresh flowers and plants; plus I cleaned up and added a wind chime to my front porch. I even made sure to keep the bathroom door closed and toilet seats down…with four males in the family its not easy ;). Almost immediately stuff started happening: my daughter got a call from her boss about a promotion, my son who has been looking for a better job for months got an interview and was hired that same week for a lot more pay, my husband is finally receiving his much over due bonus! I can't wait to do the rest of the house and the outside of my home! I always believed that your home should feel like a sanctuary. I now have feng shui to make it happen. Is it a coincidence? I think not! Why not give it a try and find out! ;)

    This book is a Shui-In (pardon pronunciation)

    This is the best self-help book I've read, ever. Jayme takes a subject that can be overwhelming and presents it in a way that can be easily understood and applied by anyone from novice to expert. My home, my office, and my life have changed dramatically due in great part to the Barrett Way. What you want may not fall into your lap, but you will find ways to make things happen for you, and you will find ways of seeing everyday miracles that you wouldn't otherwise see, thus enriching your life. If there were more than five stars, Jayme would surely warrant them!

    Stunning and Practical

    Jayme Barrett has written a book on feng shui that is highly informative, readable, easy to use, and beautiful to look at. This book, as well as Jayme's course here at B&N, have absolutely helped me to change tracks. Just beginning to implement the suggestions in this book has resulted in increasing my energy and motivation as well as improving my overall mood. The book is filled with gorgeous photographs by Jonn Coolidge that beautifully illustrate the ideas presented by Jayme. It is a joy to read as well as to browse through the pictures. I've read the book several times now and have begun to suspect that I will have to buy a backup copy since I will probably wear this one out!

    A Book To Change Your Life

    I highly recommend Feng Shui Your Life by Jaymee Barrett. I came upon this book when I took a Barnes & Noble University class led by Jaymee herself. This book is practical, easy to read, and easy to understand. Making the suggested subtle changes in your living space can completely change your home. The book also covers apartments and offices. The premise of the author is that you should love your living space and every (absolutely every!) thing in it. This book is a step by step guide to tackling your house (living space) one room at a time, to achieve the house of your dreams. It is also a very knowledgable and informative introduction into Feng Shui. Feng Shui Your Life is great for beginners, people wanting to learn more about Feng Shui, and for those who are searching for practical and successful cures and enhancements for their home.
