Publisher's Summary

The number one international best seller!

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 co-author of the multimillion best seller 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.

Simple but Life Changing Book

I came across this book by accident at a time when I was "searching" for more -- the title initially made me laugh, I read some good reviews online, it's only a one-hour listen so I borrowed the book from my library audio-app. It literally opened my eyes to what I should already have known. A couple weeks later I listened to it again through my library app and then listened to Spenser Johnon's Out of the Maze (part II of this book).
A year later, I have now added it to my Audible collection and listened to it again last night - each time, it brings me to a new realization. This book is one Audible credit you will not regret!

Obvious, but interesting enough.

I like the metaphor. It helps to see yourself from a different angle. The book is a bit repetitive, but quite entertaining. If I had to go through a major change, I'd re-read it.

Excellent! Must read

This book has seriously changed my life and my perspective of the world. For so long I was complacent and unwilling to accept change, but this book has really broadened my horizons on how to really move on from the past and attain whatever goal you seek. Highly recommend !

Profound life lessons that helps me adjust my mind

Profound life lessons that helps me adjust my mind to the unavoidable reality that only Change is constant in life. Born grow get old and die. The only thing constant here is change. So I have learnt to enbrace change because it provides opportunities to be better accomplish more. God made everything to change. Seasons of the year. Each day is new. So why not change. I known it is not easy to change but we can seek to make the most of the change. When we do then we see it as reinvigorating.

Puts Things Into Perspective!

Love listening to this book. Everytime I feel out of focus or down in regards to what life throws at me, I remember this story. It really reminds the only direction I can go from down, is up.

Good book, but is it really that unique?

Been wanting to read this book for years. Now that it is finished, I'm a little let down. Embrace change! Yup... completely agree. Looking for more insight. Like I said, this is a good book.But if you have already accepted change as a part of life, this may not offer much substance past that notion.

A great story short story.. and some filler

How moved my cheese (the short story) is both charming and insightful. The story is about 20 minutes. The rest of audiobook is poorly written and executed.. truly ruins what could be a great audiobook.

Everyone needs to read this book. for me it couldn't have came at a better time, although I wished I read it much sooner in life. This book provides much needed advise to alter your thinking for the betterment of yourself, family, and/or company.

Amazing Book!

This is my first time hearing the story - but I’ve heard about this book for years. The insight I received is incredible. I just wish I heard or read this story 5 years ago. Thank you!
