Publisher's Summary

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.

Enneagram made simple

This is a great overview book for anyone who wants to understand the knowledge of the Enneagram. The strong real life examples of each personality type put the behavioral attributes in perspective and easy to understand. Definitely worth the time to read.

Uncanny, funny, deeply thought provoking.

I got this book on recommendation from a trusted mentor as I was brand new to the concept of the enneagram. I highly recommend this as a fantastic place for people who are curious about it. This book helped me identify my type (2). Discovering my hidden motives and desires has been both fascinating and, in some ways, crushing for me, but definitely worth the pain to better understand myself and the dynamics of my relationships with others.

a good primer

The author does a descent job of holding the attention of the reader with clever comparisons and funny stories. The book summarizes most of what you'd get if you opened the middle of Riso and Hudson wisdom of the Enneagram. and then at the end you get a taste of Richard Rohr to whet the appetite for more. The problem is unless you get a hold of resources where people walk it out, it's interesting but quite a mystery how to apply it best. even so, I found the tone and heart of the book was humble and generous.

Great introduction to the Enneagram.

Very readable. Ian Morgan Cron has a great sense of humor and is a talented writer and reader. I followed along with the physical book while listening to the audiobook. This was a very effective way for me to stay on task. This was a required textbook for my schooling in spiritual direction.

Fantastic Read!!

Would you listen to The Road Back to You again? Why?

Absolutely! It is easy to listen to you and easy to understand. Has a lot of useful information for learning about yourself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Doesn't really have characters since it is more about different personality types.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wished I had time to listen to the whole thing in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

If you want to learn who you are at your core and how to better yourself within that realm, this is the book to read.

Entertaining View of the Enneagram

Good practical application of a tool that can be a little abstract. I liked the consistent structure and will likely refer back to the hard copy of the book.

I laughed, and cried a bit.

Hearing me described by some stranger was both awkward, scary and fascinating in equal measures. I am not a religious person, so I was hesitant about the christian approach, but this listen is so chuck full of humor and easily related stories I didn't mind. Thanks for an excellent read!

A perfect introduction to the Enneagram

I have loved Ian Chron since I first discovered him and through this book I have also come to love Susan Stabile and The Enneagram.

Written with compassion and honesty this is the perfect book to start what is a challenging journey.

With Ian and Susan by your side it feels so much more doable.

Brilliant

It’s not often that you finish an audible book and then run out to buy the printed version straight away. This book is compelling, highly insightful and fresh and left me wanting more. I highly recommend it.
