"Take Care of Your Type is unlike any other Enneagram book I've read. It guides readers to find their Enneagram type so they can learn more about themselves, and then it offers meaningful and practical ways for each reader to apply that newfound knowledge to their self-care routines. Wilcox's compassionate tone gives a sense of gentle guidance and encouragement, which is much needed when discussing the vulnerabilities many of us feel surrounding self-care. This book is a must-read for anyone looking for a little self-love this season."
