When the layman encountered problems in his (or her) life, sometimes he might yearn to consult a feng shui master or Ba Zi astrology master for assistance. However, sadly he found out too late that the master whom he hired could not produce the hoped for results that he expected. This book was a brief attempt to explain some of the common myths surrounding both feng shui and Ba Zi astrology. It hoped to reveal to our readers which concepts worked and why; which methods might be misleading or inconclusive. For instance, an auspicious number for your car, house or telephone might still not bring you the luck. The number of steps on your staircase or the color of your walls had no effect whatsoever in enhancing your luck. The "real" or genuine methods of feng shui and Ba Zi just did not work in this hocus pocus manner.
