Excellent work by author in explaining a dilemma faced by most folks (any form of change in life) in layman terms. Very easy read and yet the book does an excellent job in getting the point across. Every time you read it, the book prods you to view change in a different perspective. Must read!

Spencer Johnson is one of those few great achievers who make you feel they are just ordinary people like you and me. This is the second of his books that I am reading (the first being the One minute Manager).
Reading who moved my cheese was first an emotional experience... then intellectual, it came at a time when I had to deal with transition and deep loss. I recommend it to any one afraid of letting go of the known past for the uncertain present and future where we all must live, love and grow. It is a book of hope!

John-Paul, October 14, 2006 (view all comments by John-Paul)
This has got to be the most over-hyped book in history. Why has it sold so many copies? Corporations buy it in bulk and hand out thousands of copies to employees because "Who Moved My Cheese?" tells employees to not question authority and happily accept any change that comes along.

The parallel between mice trapped in a maze and employees stuck in cubicles is striking.

When change comes it's not anyone's fault, certainly not anyone in authority, so the best way of dealing with it, advises Dr. Johnson, is to look at the bright side, scurry off to find new cheese and --- oh, yes --- LAUGH at yourself.

So the next time downsizing leaves you demoted or out on the street, or a new and improved compensation plan requires more work for less pay, don't forget to laugh at yourself.

Just the way management is laughing at you, little mouse.
