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.
