    The simple story of Who Moved My Cheese? reveals profound truths about change that give people and organizations a quick and easy way to succeed in changing times. Who Moved My Cheese? is an enlightening story of four characters who live in a "Maze" and look for "Cheese" to nourish them and make them happy. Two are mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two are mouse-size people named Hem and Haw.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Who Moved My Cheese? to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. This is a great listen as it can be done quickly while feeling introspective on a walk.


    What other book might you compare Who Moved My Cheese? to and why?

    I would not so much compare as suggest that it should be read in conduction with Peaks and Valleys by the same author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It definitely should be listened to in one quick session.


    Any additional comments?

    I know others have said that all the commentary before and after the book is

    FitzChivalry Farseer has become firmly ensconced in the queen’s court. Along with his mentor, Chade, and the simpleminded yet strongly Skilled Thick, Fitz strives to aid Prince Dutiful on a quest that could secure peace with the Outislands - and win Dutiful the hand of the Narcheska Elliania. The Narcheska has set the prince an unfathomable task: to behead a dragon trapped in ice on the isle of Aslevjal. Yet not all the clans of the Outislands support their effort. Are there darker forces at work behind Elliana’s demand?

    This book offers practical wisdom on discovering your true purpose, professionally and in life in general, in the form of a business fable by Jon Gordon, the best-selling author of The Energy Bus and Soup. Nobody captures the deeper meaning of business like Jon Gordon, and The Seed is his most searching and significant book yet. Whatever your profession, take this insightful look at the purpose behind work, and plant the seed of inspiration in your life!

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story got at the essence of finding your purpose in life. The story seemed to try and avoid the fact that it was a spiritual story if not really a religious one. It would have been cleaner had it just accepted that it was rather than trying to conceal as some mystic paranormal activity.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed the book. I will likely listen to it again when I've had time to digest it. Did it change my life; probably not. Did it provoke some introspection with a different view point absolutely.
