This is not your common Enneagram book. The information is very good and thought provoking but I am not sure if it is a study in the 'true Enneagram' at all. The basic nine types of the system are covered very well, but there are 3 types added as a kind of expansion to types 2,3, and 4. With the addition of these types the count is brought to 12 types. The 12 types are related directly to stories found in the Bible regarding the 12 tribes of Judah. After the connection is established the author moves on into a depth of description of the types that is hard to match. From childhood to adulthood and in various situations, each type is explored and explained. I really liked the book. Although it is not orthodox Enneagram it added much insight and knowledge to my research.
