A timeless business classic, Who Moved My Cheese? uses a simple parable to reveal profound truths about dealing with change so that you can enjoy less stress and more success in your work and in your life.

It would be all so easy if you had a map to the Maze.
If the same old routines worked.
If they'd just stop moving "The Cheese."
But things keep changing...

Most people are fearful of change, both personal and professional, because they don't have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Dr. Spencer Johnson, the coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager, uses a deceptively simple story to show that when it comes to living in a rapidly changing world, what matters most is your attitude.

Exploring a simple way to take the fear and anxiety out of managing the future, Who Moved My Cheese? can help you discover how to anticipate, acknowledge, and accept change in order to have a positive impact on your job, your relationships, and every aspect of your life.

    This book was recommended to me a couple years ago and I finally read it today. It’s amazing how most of us resist to changes in life. This book opened up my mind to changes. It also helped me realize that I have to be prepared for what’s to come!

  • So much in such a short story

    By Northlandy
    Does this book need another 5 star review? Probably not but I anticipate it having a major impact on my personal and professional life and wanted to give a little back to the author. Thank you. This is going on the list of books I read every few months. If you are on the fence about this book, just read it, you'll be so glad you did.

    This was a very interesting read. It is curious that there are so many people I can identify with from the story. This includes those people within ourselves.
  • Easy read

    ...read this book. You'll read it in one sitting and get enough ideas and perspective to last a lifetime. Instinctively we know change is inevitable but dealing with it is learned behavior, and how we choose to deal with change itself changes over time. This story will put the edge back on your blade and let you slice through the chaos, keeping your health and humor intact.
