its ever been before. It almost looks like fun.

Facets of Type is an excellent practical personal
development manual that also has enough substance to be
part of the toolkit used by personal and executive coaches.
Margaret and Gary Hartzler offer a compact set of useful
tools. Little prior knowledge of type is needed to use the
workbook checklists to identify both your predominant habits
and what may be your needs for development.
There is no other book like this in type literature.
Facets of Type is a needed and impressive addition to type
literature. Facets of Type, with its innovative exercises
to develop our nonpreferred preferences, overflows with
a genius of insight and presentation. This book offers practical
and interesting step-by-step type activities.
