Publisher's Summary

Who Moved My Cheese? is a simple parable that reveals profound truths about change. It is an amusing and enlightening story of four characters that live in a "Maze" and look for "Cheese" to nourish them and make them happy. "Cheese" is a metaphor for what you want to have in life, whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or spiritual peace of mind. And "The Maze" is where you look for what you want, the organization you work in, or the family or community you live in. The characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with it successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls. When you come to see "The Handwriting on the Wall", you can discover for yourself how to deal with change, so that you can enjoy less stress and more success (however you define it) in your work and in your life. Written for all ages, Who Moved My Cheese? takes a little over an hour to listen to, but its unique insights can last a lifetime.

    "Cheesy, but relevant"

    I read this book 7 years ago, listened to it 4 years ago, and listened to it again last night. I always have the same first impression within the first 15 minutes - this is ridiculous. Why am I listening to this cheesy story about mice and little people wearing track suits in a maze? But as I soldier on, I have to empathize with many of the little comments and scenarios and am always glad I finished the book. I honestly think I should listen to this book every 6 months (or monthly, because that seems to be how often I get blind-sided by change at work!)

    In addition to the story, I appreciate listening to the comments and realizing thousands of other people are getting bombarded and stressed out by constant changes as well. That touch of insight alone makes this short listen a very good investment.

    "Thought provoking!"

    This book has been passed around my office for the 10 few years and now it has reached my desk. Working in my division, you see constant changes in management and among your peers. As a supervisor, this book help me prepare my subordinates for changes in the office as well as in life. I even bought the childrens version for my teenagers. This book has become a life lesson for myself and my family and from us it receives much applauds.

    "Wonderful little Moral"

    This is a total must read for everyone including kids. My seven year old has listened to the story and we talk about it often. It has helped her cope with all of the changes in our lives recently including a big move, changing schools and jobs. It gives her a frame of reference of how to properly deal with her insecurity. And, me too.

    "A cute and important story"

    I heard a lot about this book, and even had it in paperback, but never took the time to read it, so I decided to listen to it instead. It is a cute story, and delivers a very important message in a very delicate way. But, you can get the message in about 1/3 the time, and don't need to listen to the entire book to learn it.

    "THE TRICK IS TO APPLY THIS TO YOUR LIFE"

    This was interesting, but not life changing for me. When I talked to other people about how they related it to personal relationships, getting older and not using new technology, staying at home watching t.v. instead of learning a new sport or hobby, reading the same kind of books year after year, etc. Lesson here: DON'T STAGNATE EVER !!! Those who keep changing with the flow of life, enjoy life and prosper.

    "Infantile"

    I had heard about this fabled bestselling book for so many years that I finally had to try it and was astonished. It is a children's story condescendingly told like Mr. Rogers reading a bedtime story to children. Any contemporary business professional who needs this Mother Goose approach to understand organizational change is in pretty sad shape.

    "A Cheesy Tale"

    Who Moved My Cheese is a cute tale about change itself and how those who resist change can get left behind while those who embrace change can blossom and in fact, those who embrace change may even become better for it. In a specific example covered in the book, they were so worried about change that they didn’t even realize that the change could lead more cheese and in some cases, better cheese altogether. To put this in our own terms – while change is fearsome because of the unknown, one also needs to realize that the “unknown” doesn’t necessarily mean bad or worse and in the book we see that in this case - change happens and it’s a good thing for all.

    While this is just a fun tale, the analogy is one we can all learn from and relate to. In all walks of life and in whatever we do in life, humans will face change and how they deal with that change will affect them for better and/or for worse depending on the person. That said – move with the cheese and if you are able to embrace change you can become a better person from it.
