Nice overview and intro book. It's age appropriate for young adults (late teens) too. ( )

This is a simple look at the Enneagram. Some treatments of the Ennegram get overly complicated and are difficult to follow. This one is fairly easy to wrap your head around. With cartoons and suggestions for practice for each of the nine types. Of course other books have a more in-depth analysis. This gives a good at-a-glance view of each type in life, work and relationship. ( )

Explained it in simple terms. I will use this as a reference when developing characters for my stories. ( )

Helpful tool. This is especially helpful when working with couples in counseling. ( )

I find that this book is a really great way to introduce people to the Enneagram for the first time.
It's approach is nonthreatening, nonjudgmental and breaks each number down to it's basics in a real world way that helps people connect them with their lives.

And I love the illustrations, they capture the essence of each number perfectly. ( )
