Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Riso, a prominent teacher of enneagram--a system of nine personality types derived from esoteric tradition and recently gaining in popularity--combines enneagram personality types with recovery movement techniques of releasing undesirable traits and affirming desirable ones. For those unfamiliar with enneagram, he provides a brief introduction plus references to his three previous books, Personality Types (Houghton, 1987. o.p.), Understanding the Enneagram (Houghton, 1990), and Discovering Your Personality Type (Houghton, 1992). Most of his new book is a series of 16 single-sentence releases and nine affirmations for each type, plus 25 general affirmations for everyone. For people in recovery who know their enneagram number, these statements may provide useful reminders of one's own best and worst tendencies. Recommended for public libraries with self-help collections.-- Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll. , Farmville, Va.
