Publisher's Summary

This is a personal transformation book rooted in the wisdom of the Enneagram system of personality types. It is a book about waking up and growing into the best version of yourself. It is a book that shows you how to discover who you are and what you can be. It is a book about finding your path, facing your shadow, and discovering your true self.

It is a good news - bad news - good news story. The good news: You survived childhood. The bad news: In order to grow, you are going to experience some pain. The really good news: You can use your negative habits as a springboard to move beyond them. With a commitment to self-observation and reflection, you can develop greater self-awareness and open yourself up to a life filled with exciting choices and opportunities.

Each of the nine chapters includes these features:

  • The problematic perspective, the process of self-discovery, and the path forward for that type
  • How the main issues for that type get played out in three different ways
  • The three distinct sub-types of the main type (necessary for pinpoint accuracy in describing your personality and your path of growth)

Can't stand the haughty tone of narrator.

I am trying to stay with - as I love the enneagram but this narrator is intolerable - I can't tell what I think of the information - safely returning

Poor and boring narrator

Just couldn't listen.
The narrator's voice made it difficult to listen. I enjoy learning about the enneagram and read and listened to a couple books on the topic. Unfortunately this narrator was hard to follow and painful to listen. No disrespect intended.

Loved This Book

A wonderful deep dive into Enneagram types, of which I gleened a great deal. I'm a type 5 and am working on myself. This book helps to create the pathway to a better me.

One minor thing: in order to enjoy the narration I put the speed to 1.3. I guess that's not really a negative, as everyone is different.

Spoiled by the narration

I really wanted to like - and listen to - this book, as it's by respected experts in the field. But the narration completely ruins it. I felt like I was back in kindergarten! The narrator spoke each word so deliberately and exaggerated, in such a sing-songy voice, that it was completely unnatural and became impossible to listen to. I'm not sure if authors get any choice in who narrates their book - if they do, the authors of this made a serious mistake and, if they don't, they must be quite disappointed. If you like being spoken to like a 5 year old child it might work for you but I couldn't continue. I don't know what 'type' that makes me - I wasn't able to listen long enough to find out!
