Comments about Who Moved My Cheese?:
I read this book in an hour. It was easy to read, quick to finish but had a few themes and concepts to think about after having finished the book. Some friends recommended it to me to improve your ability to adapt to change and I think it definitely gives you a good, simple story to compare you actions to.
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)
