Enneagram Resources

Books, of course, are the best and most in-depth resources for Enneagram information. You won't find anything better online. And if you're poor, just go to Books-A-Million and read for awhile! ^_^ There are also, of course, online sources where information of secondary quality can be found.

The following lists the books and sites of modern Enneagram authorities, the most established of which are personality psychologists Don Riso and Russ Hudson.
