Ignorance is bliss--except in self-awareness.What you don't know about yourself can hurt you and your relationships--and even 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 typing 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 ourselves, compassion for others, and love for God. Witty and filled with stories, this book allows you to peek inside each of the nine Enneagram types, keeping you turning the pages long after you have read the chapter about your own number. Not only will you learn more about yourself, but you will also start to see the world through other people's eyes, understanding how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help 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.… (altro)

Good book on the enneagram. ( )
  HeidiSC | Apr 28, 2022 |
If you’re interested in the Enneagram but it seems really overwhelming, what with the triads and the wings and all the different numbers, this is a great place to start. Ian Cron has a gentle and light-hearted voice as he goes thru each number in his own order, and then he sprinkles in more details as they’re needed, so they don’t feel terribly overwhelming. The triads and stress/security levels aren’t explained in a lot of depth, but it’s enough for a beginner, and there are lots of other books that will go deeper. The book is written from a Christian perspective and does talk a fair amount about God, but I felt it was much more in the context of “finding out who God made you to be,” God is peripheral rather than central.

Each number begins with a list of characteristics portrayed by the number, and then a story of an individual who portrays those characteristics. Cron describes the good, the bad, and the ugly about each number, how they likely were as children, what they would be like in a work environment, and in relationship. While Cron does cover the negative side of each number, he does so in an truthful and encouraging way, and each chapter ends with a list of actions to take in order to move toward health and integration.

There’s no test included to determine your number, but the lists in front of each chapter should serve as a fairly good indicator of which one fits you, and online tests abound, if you want to take one. The book is a good general overview of the Enneagram, it’s very accessible and quite enjoyable to read.

As an aside, the authors, Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile, actually put together a podcast as a lead up to the release of their book a couple years back. They would talk Enneagram stuff with lots of people at varying levels of study in Enneagram, and they covered all the different numbers. Many of the guests were well known to me from Christian media circles, and others were brand new, but the conversations reveal things about the numbers in a personal way that just reading a book cannot. Plus, Ian and Suzanne are just fun to listen to, and very engaging. The podcast is also called The Road Back to You, and if you want to learn even more about all things Enneagram, this is a good place to do it, tho it would be helpful to have at least a little knowledge of what they’re talking about when you start.

I am a part of a family chock full of scientists and mathy people, so personality strikes me as something unquanitifiable. And I still entertain doubts about myself, whether I am truly more talented at committing the horrid faults associated with one Enneagram type than any other. In spite of my doubt, after finishing this book, I realize that the Enneagram is stubbornly relevant and persistently provocative. Even if it is not the Swiss Army knife that some promise, I feel that it has something to say about me.
Ian has a honed writing style, even if it has been somewhat overproduced. He tells memorable stories and anecdotes with zest and snarky humor. The book has been written for a modern audience, I felt that the authors sympathized with my short attention span, which is worth at least a star.
The only reason I gave the book four stars and not five is because of my doubts about the explanatory power of the Enneagram; these writers, however, have given us a fantastic introduction with which to begin to explore the concept. ( )

This is without a doubt the best introductory enneagram book I've come across. I plan to recommend it to everyone I know who want to explore self-discovery and do some inner work. Great stories. Great illustrations. Great insight. Tons of fun! ( )

This is a pithy, but highly informative read about what motivates us. It gets at our dearest and darkest desires and how we can be our best selves, particularly if we are people of faith. When reading my section, I felt a shot of pain, but also great enlightenment. I will return to this again. ( )
