    The names Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron may or may not mean something to you. When I heard they were writing a book about the Enneagram, I paid attention. Stabile is a well-known Enneagram teacher. I've never been able to attend one of her workshops but I've followed her online f...

    If you are new to and curious about the Enneagram, I think this book is a fantastic way to start digging into it. Cron wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, childhood, relationships) as well as details the various elements of the Enneagram (wings, s...

    I kept hearing about the Enneagram, took a quiz and got multiple answers, that's when I decided to go digging... Many of my very favorite podcasts mention the Enneagram and I got curious. This book was a wonderful introduction. There are 9 categories that you can fall into with wing...

    Super helpful and enjoyable introduction to the enneagram. I'd read nothing on it previously other than a couple inline summaries, and this was an accessible and relatable entry into what seems to be a rich and complex thing. It moves quickly, it is concise, it is funny in parts, and i...

    Knowing my Myers-Briggs type never did much for me. Knowing my Enneagram number has deepened my self-awareness, given me practical and specific tools for growth, and helped me better understand people who are wired entirely differently than me. Part of what makes this ancient person...

    My love and I have optimistically embraced personal growth and deeper self-awareness since our beginning almost nine years ago - to better ourselves as both a faith-based married couple, mothers to our two adorable children, assertive individuals, mirrored souls with a beautiful life j...

    I discovered this book by listening to Anne Bogel's #whatshouldireadnext podcast, episode #141. She and Ian Morgan Cron were talking about the Enneagram #s of various authors and characters in books. I had already taken to test to determine my Enneagram type, but I still wasn't sure. I...

    Summary: Describes the Enneagram and each of the nine types, and how these may be helpful in Self-discovery, uncovering one's true self and experiencing spiritual growth. John Calvin, and many others have observed that knowledge of God and knowledge of self often go hand in hand. Of...

    Maybe it's because I came to this book already equipped with a basic working knowledge of the enneagram, but I found The Road Back to You to be a bit more helpful in my understanding of the enneagram than Richard Rohr's book (The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective), which was my introd...

    My favorite quotes from this book: ? The Enneagram should only be used to build others up and help them advance on their journey toward wholeness and God. ? ? When we stop trying to change people and simply love them that they actually have a shot at transformation. The Enneagr...

    I haven't read or learned extensively about the enneagram, and truthfully this was my first exposure to it. I doubt that I'll read much more. I'll start with some positives about the book and my understanding of the enneagram as a result. The book is an easy read. Cron's writing sty...

    I?m not sure how to rate this book, as I don?t read this genre often; I read this for my bookclub. That said, for what it is, I really loved it. It?s super insightful and helpful, and I loved his pastoral perspective?the focus on our identity in Christ, his celebration of o...

    I love this book. I have recommended it to everyone as a guide for deeper understanding into the Enneagram. I read it front to back, but now use it more as a guide and pull it out often to look up certain types. Ian?s narration is funny and very helpful ? always pointing towards tr...

    A good primer on Enneagram from a Christian perspective. ...

    Personality type fascinates me. I knew some about the Enneagram before reading this but this book helped me want to understand people better in order to love them well. ...

    Seriously impactful book. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to deepen self understanding and for any one looking to understand the people around them better. ...

    Upon first reading, I really enjoyed the book, and found all of the personality descriptions very interesting. Upon reflection, however, I feel like there are some aspects to the personality profile that don?t ring true. It was fun, but not life-changing. ...

    Wow. The enneagram has opened up so much to think on. I have learned so much about myself and have so much more to learn. I love that this book takes the approach of the enneagram through the lens of the Gospel. I think I've figured out my number (a 6) but I'm not still not certain (wh...

    Unfortunately, much of what I want to say about this book is bad. The overall premise of this book is that God made us unique individuals whose show aspects of his character. Each type has a tendency toward certain sins that they will need to work on. The way we should use this book is...

    Recommended for: Christians who have already read a non-religious take on the Enneagram Not recommended for: Everyone else. *Listened to the audiobook I guess I am not the target audience for this, being non-religious, but reading the Goodreads Q&A above stating that is not re...

    The names Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron may or may not mean something to you. When I heard they were writing a book about the Enneagram, I paid attention. Stabile is a well-known Enneagram teacher. I've never been able to attend one of her workshops but I've followed her online f...

    If you are new to and curious about the Enneagram, I think this book is a fantastic way to start digging into it. Cron wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, childhood, relationships) as well as details the various elements of the Enneagram (wings, s...

    Recommended I'd been avoiding it for a long time, but I finally read The Road Back to You. I put it off for a long time because I was reluctant to dig into the Enneagram, aka, the type indicator that deals with your junk. Can't I just do another StrengthsFinder, please? But after re...

    I haven't read or learned extensively about the enneagram, and truthfully this was my first exposure to it. I doubt that I'll read much more. I'll start with some positives about the book and my understanding of the enneagram as a result. The book is an easy read. Cron's writing sty...

    The names Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron may or may not mean something to you. When I heard they were writing a book about the Enneagram, I paid attention. Stabile is a well-known Enneagram teacher. I've never been able to attend one of her workshops but I've followed her online f...

    If you are new to and curious about the Enneagram, I think this book is a fantastic way to start digging into it. Cron wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, childhood, relationships) as well as details the various elements of the Enneagram (wings, s...

    Recommended I'd been avoiding it for a long time, but I finally read The Road Back to You. I put it off for a long time because I was reluctant to dig into the Enneagram, aka, the type indicator that deals with your junk. Can't I just do another StrengthsFinder, please? But after re...

    I haven't read or learned extensively about the enneagram, and truthfully this was my first exposure to it. I doubt that I'll read much more. I'll start with some positives about the book and my understanding of the enneagram as a result. The book is an easy read. Cron's writing sty...

    Sound basics of the Enneagram. I feel like it?s obviously just a starting place, but it helped me find my own surprising number and opened my eyes to some areas of personal understanding and growth I hadn?t previously considered. ...

    One of the most accessible, readable books on the Enneagram I've encountered. ...

    "There are others [personality typing systems] that describe and encourage you to embrace who you are, which isn't very helpful if who you are is a jerk." This is wonderful introduction to the Enneagram Personality Typing System. The authors break down a complicated subject into a ...

    I?m a believer .. so eye-opening & spot-on. ...

    Some of my family members introduced me to this book. I had never heard of it before, and they were going to read it and then discuss it together. Once I found out it was about personality types, I really wanted to get in on the discussion. So I bought the book so that I would be able ...

    I listened to this book and when I was about 3/4 of the way through it, I hopped online and ordered a copy of it. Definitely a book I want to own and know I will find myself coming back to to help refresh my understanding of the enneagram. I've heard from several people who have thorou...

    This book was written with lots of compassion, humor, and insight. It would be a good introduction to the Enneagram or a good supplement for those who are already familiar--it does a better job than most of reflecting on being in community with different Enneagram types. ...

    What an insightful book. After briefly explaining what the Enneagram is, Cron just jumps right into the descriptions. From there, he expects you to read the different types and try to place your type yourself, and while I was accurate that I'm a type 8 (The Challenger) I found that the...

    I?m not sure how to rate this book, as I don?t read this genre often; I read this for my bookclub. That said, for what it is, I really loved it. It?s super insightful and helpful, and I loved his pastoral perspective?the focus on our identity in Christ, his celebration of o...

    I love this book. I have recommended it to everyone as a guide for deeper understanding into the Enneagram. I read it front to back, but now use it more as a guide and pull it out often to look up certain types. Ian?s narration is funny and very helpful ? always pointing towards tr...

    A good primer on Enneagram from a Christian perspective. ...

    Personality type fascinates me. I knew some about the Enneagram before reading this but this book helped me want to understand people better in order to love them well. ...

    Seriously impactful book. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to deepen self understanding and for any one looking to understand the people around them better. ...

    The names Suzanne Stabile and Ian Morgan Cron may or may not mean something to you. When I heard they were writing a book about the Enneagram, I paid attention. Stabile is a well-known Enneagram teacher. I've never been able to attend one of her workshops but I've followed her online f...

    If you are new to and curious about the Enneagram, I think this book is a fantastic way to start digging into it. Cron wonderfully explains each type, giving context to them in many ways (work, childhood, relationships) as well as details the various elements of the Enneagram (wings, s...

    What an insightful book. After briefly explaining what the Enneagram is, Cron just jumps right into the descriptions. From there, he expects you to read the different types and try to place your type yourself, and while I was accurate that I'm a type 8 (The Challenger) I found that the...
