This is by far the best introduction to the Enneagram for those who are new to it. The material is handled in a very light hearted manner, but the foundational material is very solid. I recommend this book all the time to clients and they get a lot out of it, without being overwhelmed or put off but the negative approach many other authors take. Don't overlook this as a resource; it is one of the best.
it is a very easy and very simple book to read. it is a good reference book. plus it is kind of fun to read through it and try to determine friends and familys number match.
If you've been meaning to figure out how the enneagram personality typing system works, but felt intimidated by weighty tomes on the subject, THE ENNEAGRAM MADE EASY is the book for you! Packed with amusing cartoons that describe aspects of each enneagram personality type on almost every page, this book provides the most interesting and entertaining introduction to the enneagram anyone could hope for. A chapter is devoted to each enneagram type, so you can fully explore: the Perfectionist, the Helper, the Achiever, the Romantic, the Observer, the Questioner, the Adventurer, the Asserter, and the Peacemaker. I love the way THE ENNEAGRAM MADE EASY includes fascinating sub-sections in each chapter such as: 'What's Hard About Being a Four,' 'Typical Thoughts of a Seven,' and 'How to Get Along With Me.' These fun profiles make it easy to spot one's friends, family members, co-workers and even oneself -- and to find ways to make life easier. Whether you have never before studied the Enneagram, or are intimately familiar with it, THE ENNEAGRAM MADE EASY is a book you'll feel refreshed to refer to again and again. I highly recommend it!
