Ignorance is bliss--except in self-awareness.What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships--and even keep you in the shallows with God. Do you want help figuring out who you are and why you're stuck in the same ruts? The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system with an uncanny accuracy in describing how human beings are wired, both positively and negatively. In The Road Back to You Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile forge a unique approach--a practical, comprehensive way of accessing Enneagram wisdom and exploring its connections with Christian spirituality for a deeper knowledge of ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Witty and filled with stories, this book allows you to peek inside each of the nine Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you have read the chapter about your own number. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help take you further along into who you really are--leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

Attention all type 9's: do not allow yourself to become a sloth!

This is a really helpful and informative book. Not only does it give great information about how we develop our personalities, but it also addresses what you can do to work on areas of weakness and self-improvement. While I'm not 100% sold on the accuracy of the Enneagram, there certainly is a lot that we can all learn from this tool. It addresses areas that most personality tests completely ignore.

I think one of the big takeaways that you'll get from this book is increased compassion - both for yourself and for others.

Sweet primer to the Enneagram. Well written, funny, light while also concisely capturing the profound wisdom of the Enneagram and how it can serve us, as the title indicates, on The Road Back to You. Highly Recommended!

The E-book is for the study guide only and is not the actual book.

This book immediately helped me to understand myself and people in my close circle of friends and family (including co-workers). The information will help me to extend more grace to myself and others, as it clearly shows who we each are and why perhaps we relate to the life the way we do. Really good stuff if you are committed to improving your relationships, both internal & external!
