Who Moved My Cheese? is an amusing and enlightening story of four characters who live in a maze and look for cheese to nourish them and make them happy.

This profound book from bestselling author, Spencer Johnson, will show you how to anticipate change, adapt to change quickly, enjoy change and be ready to change quickly again and again. Discover the secret for yourself and learn how to deal with change, so that you suffer from less stress and enjoy more success in your work and in life.

Review Text

From the bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager series comes this guide to help you anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change in your life, thereby achieving success. Johnson delivers his message via a simple parable about creatures living in a maze, looking for cheese to nourish them and keep them happy. The book is split into three sections: in 'A Gathering', a group discusses how they currently deal with change; in 'The Story of Who Moved My Cheese?' we find the parable itself; and in 'A Discussion', the group talks about what the story meant to them and how they mean to use it in the future. There are also fun cheese illustrations bearing key advice: 'Monitor Change - Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old'. Quick and easy to read. (Kirkus UK)show more

Our customer reviews

What an amazing little book, a quick read, but remarkable. Without giving too much away, the characters move through a situation involving, as the title suggests, cheese (cheese is a metaphor for things in you life). As they travel they discover how they adapt to change, anticipated it and enjoy it. The reader makes the connection to the characters, deciding which one you are most like. Then the book helps you recognise your behaviour patterns which make "change" difficult and through the narrative moves you to view things in a new light. It is a quite remarkable, clever little book which everyone should read at least once in their lifetime.show more
