"I am especially pleased to see Chestnut's credible research support for the renewal of this historic system in a postmodern setting. Work of this caliber invigorates the dialogue between science, mysticism, and psychology, streams of thought that have become estranged." --Helen Palmer, author of The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others in Your Life and The Enneagram in Love and Work "The Complete Enneagram title befits this work beautifully. This work is clear, thoughtful, comprehensive, and compelling. Examples of the types speaking for themselves, along with the historical roots of the Enneagram, further enrich Chestnut's work. She artfully interweaves theoretical and practical information and enhances this work with her insightful psychology background. This book is a must-read." --David Daniels, MD, Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University, and Enneagram pioneer in the Narrative Tradition "With the best subtype information currently available in print and an exquisite intermixing of the psychological, spiritual, and developmental, The Complete Enneagram more than deserves its title. Pleasurable to read and with abundant theory and practice for both the personal and professional arenas, I will encourage all of my clients to read it, even those who are already Enneagram-savvy. It is solid, classic, bold, even-handed, and original!" --Ginger Lapid-Bogda, PhD, Founder, The Enneagram in Business Network, and author of Bringing Out the Best in Yourself at Work
