    The errors of the 1st edition were still unchanged in the 2nd edition.

    Quote
    2) Flying Star Zi Wei Dou Shu, Practitioner's handbook, Ng Choon Phong & Leonard Tham

    After spotting the errors in Empyrean Matrix, I straight away went to the Emperor star allocation table of this book to spot for errors.

    Contents error, page 69, Table G "Location of Zi Wei Star";- (i) Lunar Birth Date 21st, 5th Earth column, should be Xu. (ii) Lunar Birth Date 30th, 6th Fire column, should be Wu.

    Exact two errors as the Empyrean Matrix book for Emperor star allocation table, I didn't bother to check the rest of this book as I don't rely on it for plotting Zi Wei Dou Shu star charts.

    By people sharing knowledge/info publicly, the info itself does not devalue to become "common internet data which lacks credibility and needs verifying". If everyone thinks in this way, nobody would want to share anymore in order to protect the value and integrity of their knowledge.

    Here is this book's review I wrote at WOFS more than 1 year ago:

    Flying Star Zi Wei Dou Shu (Purple Star Astrology): Practitioners Handbook (with Special Preview on Zi Wei Fengshui)

    First of all, it makes me feel that this entire book is one big (and expensive) brochure to invite readers to sign up for the author’s ZWDS course, with course details at the end of the book. This is my most expensive ZWDS English book to date and I can buy 4 copies of Empyrean Matrix book with that kind of retail price.

    The plus point about this book, it goes to lengths using tables to teach readers to manually plot a chart. It has the usual main stars description and introduces to readers the basic concepts of the flying star Si Hua method while all being very minimal on details (so minimal they’re like brief notes scribbled down during tutorials) because the author wrote if readers are interested to “continue their journey”, they can sign up for their courses. It also has a complimentary CD-rom (trial version only) but the reader has to write in for it.

    It also has a preview (really a preview, it’s not even a detailed chapter) on fengshui part of ZWDS, to trigger more interest in readers to sign up for their course, perhaps.

    Overall, I would suggest the author to print this book as a very detailed brochure to entice readers to sign up for their course instead of printing this as a book. The “details” of this book is so minimal that they might as well be distributed free. There are many existing ZWDS blogs and websites (mostly Chinese ones) offering free information which is more detailed than this book’s. As a book, this title is clearly not worth the very high retail price.

    Thank you very much for saving me the heartache as I'm looking for books in English to further my understanding of Si Hua ZWDS. Okay, back to scouring this forum and the Internet in the dim hope of finding a gem.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. I have taken courses before from the author's student and am looking for books beyond the basic levels of ZWDS, however being a banana, I'm bullied by the Chinese characters that are supposed to be my ancestral skills.  ;D
