With her book, Feng Shui for Architecture, Dr. Mainini has finally filled a gap. She has taken the rather complicated subject of Feng Shui as it applies to architecture and she has successfully laid out a step-by-step guide to understanding the mysteries of this ancient art. She has done an exemplary job of keeping this very complicated subject clear and concise for the layperson.

Dr. Mainini is one of those few wonderful people who have managed to weld together the strict disciplines of architectural practice with the aesthetics and philosophies of the ancient Chinese traditions of Feng Shui. Readers can be assured that what she writes is not founded just on theory alone, but sound practical experience.

Dr. Mainini, thank you very much for writing your book. It is very easy to understand. An excellent source book for guiding projects. My husband and I are in the home building business, so we appreciate the advice having spent much time studying the subject material before finding your book. You have dedicated your life’s work to a vocation that is going to be much more appreciated in the years to come. Keeping Feng Shui alive and modernizing its practice to fit contemporary society’s awareness of their metaphysical presence on the earth is honorable. It is an expression of your love for humanity and the whole earth. Again, Thank you.”

The subject of Feng Shui is naturally interesting and intriguing, so to have a book that concisely explains the ideas and history so thoroughly is a valuable find. Dr. Mainini’s book is that find.
Feng Shui for Architecture makes an excellent text and resource book as well as teaching guide because it is clear, informative and easy to read. It has such a natural manner of expression that it is as if the author is explaining the material verbally to the reader.
The book provides historical background and theory for Feng Shui and integrates other related practices. The theories are presented in a straight-forward manner, fully developed with thorough explanations, and visually clarified with pictures, diagrams and charts, then translated into specific practical instruction.
This book would be extremely helpful for designers and architects, as well as a strong reference resource for public and private libraries.”

The title and subtitle promises a lot and this book delivers even more. Dr. Mainini has done a fabulous job organizing and explaining, in a clear, precise manner, the principles of Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement for good energy flow, as it applies to the spaces in which we live and work. Not only is this book great for the preparation of buildings, but it is extremely useful even if you are searching for an energetically superior apartment, house or office to rent. If you are looking for an invaluable source of Feng Shui information to help bring harmony to your living and working space and your life, this is a book for you. I applaud Dr. Mainini for the publishing of this, her first book offering, and highly recommend it to those who want to learn more about this most fascinating modality of healing. A+
