About the Author

Stephen Skinner is the founder and publisher of Feng Shui for Modern Living magazine, the world's best-selling magazine on feng shui, which is available in many countries and published simultaneously in both English and Chinese. He originally learned feng shui with practicing masters in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. Skinner is also the author of The Living Earth Manual of Feng Shui, the first English-language book on feng shui published in the 20th century. Master Wu Hsien Sheng is one of the old style feng shui masters practicing mainly in Hong Kong, who inherited his profession from his father, and his father before him. Now retired and in his eighties, Master Wu remembers when the main concern of his early clients was for yin feng shui, and the lay of the land was more important than the colors of the curtains. Nowadays his clients are more likely to include businessmen or lawyers. He attributes his considerable vigor to Chinese ch'i concentrating exercises and the number of mountains he climbed when he was young.

Despite it's rise in popularity with all the Disney Mind Control patients who propose to entertain and carry out Kabbalistic rituals on stage, Feng Shui has enough historicity to keep an intellectual busy for quite a while. This "KISS" (horrible name, horrible) version is quite a nice introductory to ancient eastern geomancy, or to the Tao of Heaven and Earth. We take our translation of Feng Shui from Pu's "Book of Burial"--Wind, Water. Pu's words were much more eloquent. The book is filled with pictures and tid-bits of delictable datum. It's quite dumbed-down, so American Pharmacuetical customers can try to understand where best to keep their hordes of material sh*t they buy at Wal-Mart. The only ones who can truly practice Feng Shui are the lords of Capitalism and Communism. Everyone else doesn't have room for anything but a money toad and desk Foo dog. I find the pics of ancient burial sites most exciting. At most times I find the author's neo-paganism irritating.
