From the Publisher
Learn how to identify and understand all nine types, including:
A Reformer is a person who makes changes to something in order to improve it. I can totally see why Riso and Hudson picked this word to describe the Enneagram One. Ones are definitely the people who will try to improve everything around them. This includes themselves, other people, their environment, and their relationships. Sometimes this “improving” can get them into trouble when people didn’t ask for their help in the first place. It can also affect others negatively when Ones start judging those around them because their lives look different from their own.
The Investigator. The observer. The intellectual. Lover of knowledge, learning, and capable of accomplishing things. Fives are hard to figure out because they are reserved. Fives are extremely private with every aspect of their lives. It's not necessarily because they don’t want to let you in, but because they don’t really think it matters. Being around a lot of people tends to drain Fives, so they often keep people out to not experience that type of overwhelm. They have a deep desire to understand every aspect of life and won’t stop trying to gain information until they do.
An Enthusiast is defined as “a person who is highly interested in a particular activity or subject.” This makes me laugh because Enneagram Sevens are highly interested in life itself. Sure, maybe they are interested in one thing. But that’s only until they get bored by it and move to the next exciting thing in their life. Enthusiasts are also known as being everyone’s cheerleader in life. They absolutely hate negative experiences and can sometimes cover them up to not deal with the painful feelings associated with them.

The Enneagram for Relationships by Ashton Whitmoyer-Ober is a delightful, easy read that guides the reader in a deep dive into each Enneagram type.
For each type, she covers work relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, and familial relationships. As a Five, I felt the chapter accurately described my type - the good, the bad, and the ugly. I'm not a beginner to the Enneagram, and it still offered me some new insight.
This book provides one of the most comprehensive descriptions of each type, without delving into wings, subtypes, or levels of integration. Each chapter is full of gems - what it's like to date each type, practical tips for being your best self, and relationship strategies. Other special features of the book include examples of famous people for each type, common mistypes, and insights into childhood.
It is useful to both the person wanting to learn more about their own type and those who want to better understand others.
Finally, I appreciate her encouraging conclusion. We all need self compassion and the encouragement to keep learning.
Ashton's voice is audible on every page, and like her Instagram she is authentic, encouraging, and optimistic. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to deeply understand the nine Enneagram types.
