Review: Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes

User Review  - Ann Brown - Goodreads

This book was very interesting. The authors presented the material in a reference book sort of way, a way in which the reader can go back and review material repeatedly. I prefer to use the enneagram, but this book reflects enneagram ideas regarding character personality types. Read full review
