While I have enjoyed all of Helen Palmer’s enneagram books – this was a bit short and rudimentary even for a ‘pocket’ or abbreviated text. I found that with this shortened format, it did not provide enough context or depth to get much useful information. For those who don’t like reading long texts, they might prefer her Audiobook version – available now on Audible. Hearing (vs. reading) spoken descriptions of the different types, and with the added benefit of including numerous anecdotal excerpts from real people who share a particular enneagram ‘space’ or ‘type’ and whom are sharing insights from their own perspective is in my opinion a far easier, and better way to get immersed in the enneagram. Having read many books from a wide range of enneagram authors, I really enjoyed The Enneagram (written and narrated by Helen Palmer) on Audible and go back to it from time to time as both a valuable reference tool as well as a source of ever new realizations. Check it out!

The Pocket Enneagram: Understanding the 9 Types of people Paperback – August 4, 1995 by Helen Palmer (Author) Review
The Enneagram is a multifaceted system to understand motivations of self and others. Having this concise, portable booklet with me offers opportunities to refresh my understanding of human behavior so I can respond more effectively no matter where I am or what I am doing. Thank you, Helen Palmer! -Read Reviews-
I have used the Enneagram as a therapist since 1986 and collect most of the books as references. Palmer is great but I found this little book heavy on the philosophical/abstract side of the spectrum. Valid material, but why make a pocket size book for the intellectuals? I doubt if they take it parties to discuss with their friends, or maybe they do. I consider Palmer’s other works primary to understanding the Enneagram.
