Because this book is so short, you will probably not think it's a waste of time, but you might feel like your pocket has been picked (and slightly patronized). This book can be good for people who feel stuck in undesirable work/life situations, and the bosses who need to make changes and help people move forward. On the other hand, it doesn't address one's motivations, or the deeper meaning and purpose questions behind the search for fulfillment, which are critical to understand for true growth and ultimate peace. Instead it indicates that we should be more like mice and not really think about such things. Overall, this parable might contain some nuggets for you, but don't expect profundity.

Should have listened to this a long time ago. I've used the title in conversation without knowing what it was really about. I've been through some major "cheese moving" in my life in the last few years and hadn't realized that I haven't really embraced those changes. This simple story caused me to reflect on my negative responses and contemplate how I can detect coming change, anticipate it and respond positively.
Though he was a minor character, I learned the most from Sniff. I was sniffing coming change but chose to ignore it and work hard to keep it from coming rather than accept it and respond appropriately.

I have read this book twelve times and listened to it three. I love great for people of all ages. All walks of life.
Yes!!! It is a great tool to deal with change!
Leading witht out a tittle
Visual experience in my mind!
Yes! It was an "a-hhaaa" moment
I thought this story was simple vubut effective. It was easy to yourself in the each of the characters behavors. This is one you have to reread occasionally.

I know this book is a big deal and everything but it would have been a great book few decades ago, but with all the self-help and motivational literature around it doesn't provide anything new. Also the plot is too obvious from the beginning and the story keeps going around for a long while without a reason, could have been much shorter.
Absolutely. This is a great listen as it can be done quickly while feeling introspective on a walk.
I would not so much compare as suggest that it should be read in conduction with Peaks and Valleys by the same author.
It definitely should be listened to in one quick session.
I know others have said that all the commentary before and after the book is
cute story about things you should know, but that may take a little telling.
i like the section where they were just bewildered as to where the cheese had gone.
The is truly a good read/listen :-)
Being able to take the book everywhere I go with my Mp3 player. Very easy to listen and it is very intriguing. I will listen to most of my book reading this way.
Haw, he realized he like what he was discovering within himself. He was Happy when he was not run by his fear.
Cheese Station - it gave Haw strength.
What you afraid is never as bad as you are afraid of. Change can be good you just got to find the good and positive of it. In build on that. Or you will remain stuck because of your fears if you let it.
This is a great audible book for everyone young and old (mature teen and adults)
