    Emotional Clearing by John Ruskan.

    Human Types by Susan Zannos (includes introduction to the subdivisions of the four (not three) Centers of Intelligence upon which the Enneagram teachings were originally based; you'll see the true identity of what have erroneously come to be known as "cognitive functions").
