it was amazing

Wagner's book is an excellent start to one's journey of using the enneagram for self-awareness and personal growth. Having read a number of other authors, and often felt intimidated by the complexity and number of nuances that they present, Wagner's book stands out as a highly approachable--and accurate--first exposure to this system of understanding personality and life. Although some of his terms are a bit psychological-sounding, they are always well-explained, simply portrayed through a series of graphics, and serve as a great launching point for examining each of the 9 types.

This book is strong on presenting a number of exercises/questions throughout the introduction which help a reader explore basic enneagram concepts in their own life, and facilitate the accurate identification of one's type. While other books present questions for development once a reader knows their type, this book has done the best job I've seen of presenting preliminary material to help facilitate the journey of acknowledging one's type.

I have been looking for a good introductory book on the enneagram that I could recommend to others. I believe I have finally found it.
