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.

      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.

      "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.

      Story
      "Short, Timely, Priceless"

      I had heard about Who Moved My Cheese for years but had never listened/read. A speaker referenced it at a recent conference so I decided to listened and I am so glad I did. I am in healthcare which is obviously going through rapid change and Who Moved My Cheese is exactly what I needed.

      "Read it 13 years ago and still love it."

      It was nice to have the author give more of his thoughts. Missed out on the sale, though, but still worth the ten bucks or so.
