A centuries-old Chinese practice, feng shui has captured the Western imagination as a tool for design and well-being. In this classic book, complete with helpful drawings and photographs, Sarah Rossbach shows how anyone can apply its principles to enhance their careers, family life, health, and prosperity.
Rossbach interprets the teachings of feng shui master Lin Yun for contemporary Westerners, offering practical methods for achieving harmony with one's environment. Focusing on common problems in business and residential settings, she discusses everything from the site of a building to furniture arrangement to wall decoration. In a chapter new to this edition, she explains how to choose colors that satisfy individual needs and preferences. Rossbach's easy-to-execute advice includes such simple steps as moving a microwave oven, repositioning a desk, and hanging mirrors to alleviate negative influences.

Sarah Rossbach has written four books and numerous articles on feng shui for the New York Times, the Washington Post, House and Garden, and Harper's Bazaar.
Lin Yun is a Buddhist scholar, philosopher, calligrapher, and a leading worldwide authority on feng shui. He has lectured on feng shui and Chinese culture at such institutions as Harvard University, the American Institute of Architects, and the United Nations.
Feng shui, defined by Too as the philosophy of "arranging a living environment where...energies are in complete harmonious balance," continues to interest interior designers. Beginning with a detailed explanation of the history and principles of feng shui, she discusses its use in the home, garden, and business environments and in personal life and concludes with a glossary of terms. Color photographs illustrate this book, which is similar to Rossbach's Feng Shui Design (LJ 1/99). Rossbach's newest book is an expanded edition of her first work, which is considered a classic. This update includes a new section on color and some new illustrations. Rossbach's is an excellent purchase for any sized library, while Too's should be purchased if there is a strong interest in this subject.
