This is more a lesson on the history of and different sources of information regarding Feng Shui rather than a comprehensive guide to using the practice.  There are a few tips covering several different areas of your home and life that one could find useful.

Narration is a tad robotic and off-putting, and doesn’t fit well with the subject.

If the mini-bios of bad-ass babes in all walks of life don’t inspire you to channel your own inner bad-ass self, hopefully the creative prompts, figure drawing tutorials, and quotes spread throughout this workbook will!

You will probably recognize many of the women featured, but there may be many whose accomplishments against the odds you have never heard of before.  I think every girl should get a copy of this book, and perhaps the men in our lives should read it, too!
