A very good, basic review of the enneagram that includes the perspectives of other authors.

Note, my copy was not written by John Waters, but by Susan Reynolds. I'm not sure if there are two versions or if the author is a misprint...

The bias from the author made it nearly impossible to gain any worthwhile information from the book. There were a few informative parts, but most of it was a very biased presentation of the types. Disappointed, and I don't recommend.

The text is ok, not great, but the personality test at the beginning was the best Enneagram test I've come across so far.

Interesting, and there is certainly good information in it, but I'm not convinced...

For an introduction to Enneagram, this is one is the best I've read so far. Definitely pick it up and discover yourself!

The good:
the structure of the book and the tying in with other personality systems
various enneagram experts were quoted frequently, offering different perspectives
Easy to read, somewhat beginner friendly
Not just one person's lens

The not as good:
I felt the type descriptions were too simplistic at times
Types were described in stereotypically negative ways more than I would have liked
Too much focus on behavior rather than ways of thinking
Quiz questions for my type didn't resonate with me at all
