Your happiness and success depend directly on your "people skills" - how well you get along with others, and how well you really know yourself. Now you can use a remarkable tool for evaluating your own personality and the personalities of your friends, family members, clients, and co-workers. It's called the Enneagram, an ancient geometric figure that delineates the nine basic personality types of human nature.

"Prepare to fast forward a lot."
The book is split into nine chapters, one for each enneagram. Each Chapter last approximately an hour however, the first 30 minutes or so of each chapter is a direct repeat of the introduction to the enneagram. This means one hears the same 30 minute introduction nine times. I like to Listen while I drive so manually trying to skip past the introduction 9 time was very frustrating.
The content is good but the layout and presentation was frustrating to say the least.
This book does give a good understanding of each type of Enneagram number and describes the best way to interact with each type. The content is good when it is new and fresh, but over half of the book is repeated 9 times.
"very real info and well laid out"
This was very useful information. Starting with chapter two each number of the Enneagram gets a chapter, so it is easy to find a specific number's information. It gives practical information.
The Interpretations of the 9 types were quite different than the other material I have come across. I found this book to actually be quite negative in its explanations.
"Every section is a repeat of Section 1!"
This is awful. Section 1 does not address the enneagram directly. Worst, when I fast forward to the next section - every section for the remainder of the audiobook is a repeat of section 1. The start of the section is nothing more than a commercial for Don Riso. I returned the book.
The material in this audio book is outstanding. Having read the book and followers the work of the enneagram I am glad they finally made it in audio form.
