Publisher's Summary

Few books remain on best seller lists 10 years after publication, but few books have the timeless, universal message of Who Moved My Cheese?. The tenth anniversary of this incredible #1 best seller will both remind listeners familiar with the story and reveal to a whole new generation the unique power of this deceptively simple fable, and comes with exclusive audio material, direct from Spencer Johnson himself, that can enhance the listener's experience and appreciation of this life-changing one-of-a-kind tale.

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.

"Cheese" is a metaphor for what people 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 people look for what they want - the organization they work for, or the family or community they live in. In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with change successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls. When listeners come to see "The Handwriting on the Wall" they can discover for themselves how to deal with change and enjoy more success and less stress in their work and lives.

In the exclusive interview conducted with S&S Audio for this anniversary edition, Johnson speaks candidly on a variety of Cheese-related topics, including:

  • the origins of Who Moved My Cheese?
  • its incredible impact to a variety of readers and listeners
  • the secret of its uniquely broad appeal and unending timeliness of its message
  • insights into how to make the most ...

      "Very practical"

      This book is very helpful to those who wish to have a fundamental lesson in life portrayed. You will be able to see the contrast between acting proactively and reactively while in search of something we all desire: happyness. Some of lifes lessons can never be learnt too thoroughly, and therefore can never be said too often. I see in this book the application of many tools that can lead one to happyness and also into despair. try to examine your behaviors and see which character from the story you reflect.

      "Probably better to just read it"

      You could read it from cover to cover in half an hour or less while sitting in your local bookstore or library. It's a great little story, but it might not be worth spending a credit on.

      "Simple Story but Powerful"
      What did you love best about Who Moved My Cheese??

      What would I do if I werent afraid


      What about Tony Roberts and Karen Ziemba ’s performance did you like?

      Although English being my second language. I had no issues with Tony & Karen performance. Both of them were crystal clear.


      What did you learn from Who Moved My Cheese? that you would use in your daily life?

      Ive been working as Aircraft Engineer for 15 years. Its been one hell of a ride for me working on different kind of aircrafts. Till today I take pride maintaining these beautiful flying machines. I thank God that I have made the right career choice after my high school, and I didnt look back. However, Ive been thinking lately to change my career and start a new one as "Airport Service Manager". I started to grow interest in customer service delivery and managing people in the airport. This is a major change for me but my reason for this change is because I'am currently too comfortable what I do and Am not facing challenges any more in my current role. For the past few months been really boring for me.As my company advertised the "Airport Service Manager" position. I was reluctent and afraid to apply for this job till I listened to Who Moved My Cheese? (My good friend recommended this book after we had a chat about how I am struggling at work) I loved it so much that i listened to it twice and I sat for hours reflecting on my personal and professional life. This book motivated me so much that I got up and worked on my CV straight away. If you ask me am still afraid. But I decided to go ahead and apply for this job because the thought of me being in that role makes me happy. If I dont get the job I will improve myself in any way possible so that the management consider my application again in case I fail the first time.


      Any additional comments?

      Its OK to be afraid. Feel the fear and move on. Embrace the CHANGE. And remember, believe in yourself and keep your spirit up. BE HAPPY!!!

      "Loved this audiobook"
      Would you listen to Who Moved My Cheese? again? Why?

      I've already listened it more than once. Your situation changes all the time and those lessons are applicable to different situations since cheese means different things.


      What about Tony Roberts and Karen Ziemba ’s performance did you like?

      Loved the performance, they made me smile many times while listening them


      Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

      It made me think a lot on how I react to the changes I don't like. It is very helpful

      Story
      "Timeless Message"
      Would you listen to Who Moved My Cheese? again? Why?

      I have read this book several times, over years and it never losses its appeal. The message is timeless and in our current social order and state, it is encouraging. For me, it helps to bring a sense of stability; how ironic that may sound considering the topic is "change". The stability is in accepting that life is change and surrendering to change requires staying alert and vigilant, non-resistent to change. In the words of the author, "to sniff and scurry!" I recommend the book to everyone.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of Who Moved My Cheese??

      I think the most memorable moment was the point when HAW laughed at himself as he realized that he had let fear rule his judgement and kept him immoble and "lifeless". As he took the steps to change; he acknowleged his fearful thoughts, but did not let them keep him from moving. Also, it is amazing the way the book discusses the emotion and feelings that HAW experiences as he moves forward, from apprehensive to disppointed to hopeful to exhilirated.


      What does Tony Roberts and Karen Ziemba bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      Tony and Karen help to bring the story off the pages and into the real world experiences. Good addition.


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

      I have listened to it in one sitting on several occassions. it is easy to listen to.

      Story
      "Might be worth a listen"
      Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

      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.

      "Simple story that provokes deep thoughts."
      What made the experience of listening to Who Moved My Cheese? the most enjoyable?

      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.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      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.
