Ignorance is bliss - except in self-awareness. What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships - and maybe even how you make your way in the world. It can also 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 type 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 God and of ourselves.
Funny and filled with stories, this book allows you to understand more about each of the Enneagram types, keeping you from pausing long after you have heard the chapter about yourself. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help you get on the road that will 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.

I love this book. I never thought of how motivation is more important than desired outcome, in the actions we take. This book gave me insight into myself and my closest family and friends. A great book to read with your spouse or best friends, bible group or book club.
Everyone fits into 9 slots??? You got to be kidding me.
Well, guess what. It all makes sense.
As the narrator went through each number I was able to apply each number to a person in my life and was able to understand why they act the way they do. The behaviors and why made perfect sense.
After hearing my number, I had to call my sister and told her to check out the book and listen carefully about my number(s) (actually based on the test I was about 60-40 between 2 numbers). I told her it explain my unique traits and explained why I do what I do better than I could ever explain it.
I have actually went back and listed to a few of the specific chapters more than once.
There is a good chance other similar books will make it on the list to get additional perspectives.
