16  The Wisdom of the Enneagram: The Complete Guide to Psychological and Spiritual Growth for the Nine Personality Types by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson  This is an all-around great resource; probably my favorite book on the topic, but also more in- depth understandings… offers a lot of comments on healthy-average-unhealthy as well as suggestions for spiritual growth.

17  The Enneagram Made Easy: Discover the 9 Types of People by Renee Baron and Elizabeth Wagele  This has a lot of comic-style images and cartoon- like explanations that make it an easy read to acquaint folks with the Enneagram for the first time.

18  Are You My Type, Am I Yours? : Relationships Made Easy Through The Enneagram by Renee Baron and Elizabeth Wagele  High school students love, love, love this book… and so do adults. The thing I like best about this one is how it explains what a given number likes and struggles with when it comes to interacting with others (of their same number and all the others).

19  Understanding the Enneagram: The Practical Guide to Personality Types by Russ Hudson and Don Richard Riso  This one has a great, easy to comprehend explanation of each type. I like that it calls out the characteristic virtue and vice of each number. I also appreciate the section it has on “mis-typing,” which helps participants figure out which number they are.
