    In his first-ever book, architect and TikTok influencer Tan offers feng shui made practical and comprehensible as he simplifies the potentially confusing elements that make up the way of wind and water, bringing harmony and balance to living spaces. Definitions come first, explaining the foundations of yin and yang, ba gua (solid and broken lines), the five elements, chi (energy), and the five animals (directions). He summarizes all in a sentence or less—the epitome of common sense and instinct. Accompanying Tan's bulleted text and examples of good and bad floor plans, illustrations by Dura Lee show what to avoid in various rooms and what to embrace, and demonstrate memorable examples: Make the bed every morning to destroy any stale chi. Cut down on clutter. Get rid of fake and dead plants. Consider the command position, or the best place to control a room. It becomes easy to see that too many mirrors make for an imbalance of space, and that low beds harmonize a room better than a dramatic four-poster. Practical advice for today's homes and offices.
