The world's bestselling feng shui author leads her many readers down the path to a lifetime of happiness and harmony. In the same format as the popular Lillian Too's 168 Feng Shui Ways to Declutter Your Home, her new tip-based guide examines the flow of energy, or chi, inside the home and afflictions caused by poor design. She gives simple remedies for finding romance and assuring a blissful marriage, and devotes an entire section to Flying Star feng shui, which determines exactly when certain areas are lucky or unlucky, so you can maximize their potential for peace and joy. Both tangible and intangible elements receive Too's careful attention, along with advice on doing regular feng shui updates and adding symbolic enhancements to the house.
