There is no question about it! This is the best book on the Enneagram (and I have accumulated quite a few). Anthony Blake presents both the essence of the Enneagram and enough detail for the reader to become well acquainted with the workings of this symbol. This book is ALIVE as much as the symbol itself is ALIVE! The Enneagram is not a diagram but an embodiment of the process of transformation, a process that is as much within as it is outside us. Anthony's own rich knowledge and long experience makes him one of the few really qualified to write on the subject. His presentation of it is rightly rooted in the tradition from which it came which This is the authentic Enneagram. It is more than a book on the Enneagram and the tradition from which it comes, it is one man¿s unshakable knowledge. Table of Contents.
