"Karen Webb's comprehensive but highly readable introductory work brings the Enneagram to life. Making excellent use of the self-observations of self-aware people, Webb leads readers straight into the wonders of this amazing system for understanding human personality.

"Whatever its origins, the Enneagram has become an invaluable tool, in many walks of life, for growing emotional intelligence, enhancing self-awareness and social competence, and personal development. Karen Webb draws on a life time of study and practice to provide a comprehensive guide both for those who are new to the Enneagram and those who wish to go on exploring its value for understanding themselves and the many relationships which shape their lives. As only the true expert can, she brings to a complex subject the gift of clarity without in any way being simplistic. In accessible language she analyses and describes the nine different personality types in a way which is engaging and illuminating in equal measure." -- Rt Revd Dr Michael Langrish, Bishop of Exeter
