Publisher's Summary

For all its good intentions, Who Moved My Cheese? basically reduces us to mice in a maze sniffing after cheese. Harvard Business School professor Deepak Malhorta uses a fable involving a different set of mice in a maze—mice who question everything—to help readers see how they underestimate their ability change the rules, overcome the constraints they face, and control their own destiny. I Moved Your Cheese encourages readers to audit their assumptions about what limitations they really face and which are self-imposed or unthinkingly accepted. We can create the circumstances and realities we want—we can go beyond simply changing our behavior (find that new cheese!) to changing the game itself. But to do so we need to understand the ways we’re holding ourselves back. As one of the characters in the book says, “the problem is not that the mouse is in the maze, but that the maze is in the mouse.”

    "Cute, but somehow he doesn't quite get the point"
    Would you try another book from Deepak Malhotra and/or Robert Fass?

    I'm open minded. It would depend on the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a bad book, but the reason for the low score is because I feel that the author was trying too hard to degrade the classic book that inspired it, "Who Moved My Cheese?".

    In "Who Moved my Cheese?", a group of mice in a maze become upset when the cheese they loved so much was no longer where they expected it. Some waited and waited for the cheese to come back... others quickly moved on to look for more... and another waited at first, but soon realized he should move on too.

    The simple message in this fable is that life changes, the cheese will move, and you have to accept it and do something about it.

    This book takes another approach... Why are you in the maze in the first place? Why not break through the maze... or climb out of it? It essentially extends the core message from a 2D universe to a 3D universe that extends above or outside the maze.

    While these are good points, the book tries too hard to put down the original book for not spelling this out, meanwhile the point of the first book was not HOW the mice will find what they need, but WHY they should take action.

    In the original, the bottom line was that they had to do something so they looked elsewhere in the maze. Because it's a simple fable, the message is very clear and they stay within the 2D maze.

    Just because there exists an ability to break through the maze or look outside the maze doesn't change the core message of the original... if you can't find what you are looking for, be prepared to do something about it.

    There is no reason to repeatedly point out that there were other things the mice in the original could do. The main message was to just do something and not sit there waiting for the cheese to come back.

    If I took the same approach as this book does, I could write yet another fable where my mice do something new like ride around in roller skates or make their own cheese, but it would not improve on the original premise. Do something.

    "Interesting take on WHO MOVED MY CHEESE"

    Great, quick response to Who Moved My Cheese - more about how YOU can take control! This is only about an hour too, so easy to digest. I always enjoy Robert Fass reading, too, and this is no exception. Recommended.
