Having studied the esoteric Enneagram as well as the growing literature on its practical uses, I have seen no better book on how to "work in" the Enneagram to one's daily life. Goldberg's writing is clear and succinct; his theoretical foundation solid; and the richness and imagination of his examples and situations are quite rewarding. A fun book, an approachable book, a great teaching tool, I highly recommend it.

I love "The 9 Ways of Working". I refer to it before I go into a meeting and when I return. The content enables me to understand the different personalities I am dealing with and how best to use the information to secure a signed contract. If you use the book to recognize the different types you will learn their decision-making pattern, where someone goes in their stress, and that some people feel pressured and need time to reflect before making a decision. It helps you know when to hold and when to fold. I found that being a seven can be exciting but I have to pull in the strings and not have so many kites flying at the same time. Now I try to do things in stages and though I am not a detail person I must keep a timeline to move things along to completion. Bravo!!! Great book Michael Goldberg.
