A very serious and important book for those who wish to grow spiritually and emotionally. Many books have been written on this subject. Palmer does a superb insightful job.

The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others In Your Life by Helen Palmer (1991-04-12) Paperback – 1682 by Helen Palmer (Author) Review
Long story short:1) The is the best introductory writing to Enneagram I’ve ever read;2) Enneagram gives me a much more rational and systematic perspective to understand myself and other people. After three years of studying it, I personally suggest the Enneagram contains more scientific characteristics than the classic M-B system, which you have a different personality every time you test yourself. -Read Reviews-
I read this book many years ago and it still remains my favorite book about the Enneagram. Before this I had judged all systems of character typology as oversimplified and fairly uninteresting. The Enneagram is complex and useful! It helped me to understand my interactions with many friends, my life-partner, and especially and most importantly with my two step-sons, with whom it helped me become much more accepting and understanding. I think it can be a significant part of one’s personal/professional growth. It also relieved something in me to understand that there were many other people out there with a lot of my own characteristics, and that I shared many with everyone. Extremely insightful!
