Dr Jin Peh grew up in Singapore and moved to Perth, Western Australia, as a teenager, where he graduated as a doctor. He then studied Broadcasting Journalism at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. He became interested in the Chinese Art of feng shui while working as a radio presenter and journalist.
In 2000, he started his feng shui apprenticeship in Taiwan with renowned master Chen Chien Lee in both Yang and Yin House feng shui (residence and grave), while studying classical Chinese at the National University of Taiwan.
In 2004, Jin moved to Dubai and has carried out feng shui assessments in South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia), Greater China (Hong Kong, Taiwan and China), the Middle East (Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates), Europe (Germany,Italy and Switzerland), Australia, Canada and the USA.
Since March 2005, he has been the Feng Shui columnist with the South China Morning Post, the major English newspaper in Hong Kong. Jin is also trained in both major systems of Chinese astrology, the Ba Zi (Eight Characters of Birth) Astrology with Lily Chung in San Francisco and the Zi Wei Dou Shu or Emperor Gate Astrology with Tony Tan in Singapore. 
The book is a collection of feng shui columns written for the South China Morning Post over a period of five years, from March 2005 to March 2010. They were initially published on the back page of the Sunday magazine and aimed to deliver as much information as possible on a specific topic of feng shui or other aspects of Chinese culture and metaphysics in a concise and straightforward fashion. More than 250 columns have now been collected and divided into 17 chapters, including the bedroom, the office, Chinese astrology and even Chinese names.
