    I listened to this book and when I was about 3/4 of the way through it, I hopped online and ordered a copy of it. Definitely a book I want to own and know I will find myself coming back to to help refresh my understanding of the enneagram. I've heard from several people who have thorou...

    I listened to audiobook on audible, and the author was a great narrator. I think I'll listen to parts of this again and again. It would be nice to have the hard copy for reference, though. This knowledge will actually change the way perceive myself and others. Hopefully, it will al...

    As someone who finds personality typing fascinating, I am more steeped in Myers-Briggs. Over the past few years, I have heard more about the Enneagram personality typing system and how it differs from Myers-Briggs. There's a lot of info to take in here as it is an introduction to the E...

    Updated: upped this book to a five. We can't stop talking abt it and rereading. It has given us so much clarity!! If you're a personality type junkie I highly recommend. There's a bunch of podcasts abt this book right now too that you can listen if you're more inclined that way. (Entre...

    If you are new to and curious about the Enneagram, I think this book is a fantastic way to start digging into it. Cron wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, childhood, relationships) as well as details the various elements of the Enneagram (wings, s...

    Knowing my Myers-Briggs type never did much for me. Knowing my Enneagram number has deepened my self-awareness, given me practical and specific tools for growth, and helped me better understand people who are wired entirely differently than me. Part of what makes this ancient person...

    Sound basics of the Enneagram. I feel like it?s obviously just a starting place, but it helped me find my own surprising number and opened my eyes to some areas of personal understanding and growth I hadn?t previously considered. ...

    I thought this was an excellent introduction into the idea of the Enneagram and learning about the different ways that people look at the world. So many conflicts arise because two people look at the same thing and see different things. Communication break downs, relationship expectati...

    I kept hearing about the Enneagram, took a quiz and got multiple answers, that's when I decided to go digging... Many of my very favorite podcasts mention the Enneagram and I got curious. This book was a wonderful introduction. There are 9 categories that you can fall into with wing...

    If you?re like me (a private Christian liberal-arts grad), you?ve at some point, recently or otherwise, heard of the Enneagram. More than a personality test, and less than a prescriptive cookie cutter of your every action and thought, the Enneagram has (more or less) been developed...

    Super helpful and enjoyable introduction to the enneagram. I'd read nothing on it previously other than a couple inline summaries, and this was an accessible and relatable entry into what seems to be a rich and complex thing. It moves quickly, it is concise, it is funny in parts, and i...

    The names Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron may or may not mean something to you. When I heard they were writing a book about the Enneagram, I paid attention. Stabile is a well-known Enneagram teacher. I've never been able to attend one of her workshops but I've followed her online f...

    I loved this introduction to the enneagram and its overview of the nine personality types. Clear and entertaining, each chapter provided informative and entertaining explanations of each type's nuances as well as calls to action and development for each type to understand how they oper...

    This book was written with lots of compassion, humor, and insight. It would be a good introduction to the Enneagram or a good supplement for those who are already familiar--it does a better job than most of reflecting on being in community with different Enneagram types. ...

    I?m not sure how to rate this book, as I don?t read this genre often; I read this for my bookclub. That said, for what it is, I really loved it. It?s super insightful and helpful, and I loved his pastoral perspective?the focus on our identity in Christ, his celebration of o...

    Maybe it's because I came to this book already equipped with a basic working knowledge of the enneagram, but I found The Road Back to You to be a bit more helpful in my understanding of the enneagram than Richard Rohr's book (The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective), which was my introd...

    I discovered this book by listening to Anne Bogel's #whatshouldireadnext podcast, episode #141. She and Ian Morgan Cron were talking about the Enneagram #s of various authors and characters in books. I had already taken to test to determine my Enneagram type, but I still wasn't sure. I...

    An amazing look into the Enneagram. Not only a breakdown of the 9 numbers, but also a deep look into what their childhoods looked like, how they are at work, what they are like in relationships, and what spiritual transformation looks like for each. This book accomplished its goal in m...

    I haven't read or learned extensively about the enneagram, and truthfully this was my first exposure to it. I doubt that I'll read much more. I'll start with some positives about the book and my understanding of the enneagram as a result. The book is an easy read. Cron's writing sty...

    Wow. The enneagram has opened up so much to think on. I have learned so much about myself and have so much more to learn. I love that this book takes the approach of the enneagram through the lens of the Gospel. I think I've figured out my number (a 6) but I'm not still not certain (wh...

    I love this book. I have recommended it to everyone as a guide for deeper understanding into the Enneagram. I read it front to back, but now use it more as a guide and pull it out often to look up certain types. Ian?s narration is funny and very helpful ? always pointing towards tr...

    "There are others [personality typing systems] that describe and encourage you to embrace who you are, which isn't very helpful if who you are is a jerk." This is wonderful introduction to the Enneagram Personality Typing System. The authors break down a complicated subject into a ...

    Some of my family members introduced me to this book. I had never heard of it before, and they were going to read it and then discuss it together. Once I found out it was about personality types, I really wanted to get in on the discussion. So I bought the book so that I would be able ...

    Reading this book is like holding up a mirror with magnification. You don?t always like what the magnification reveals. Especially at first. However, once you get past the initial jolt, it is cathartic, enlightening and challenging. It not only helps you better understand yourself an...
