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)

Book Review: Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson - Reviewed by EJ (02 Sep 2010)
This is a deceptively simple book. Very easy to read in a short time, and easy to understand. If you are open to it, it could lead to a lot of self questioning, but even on the surface it has a good moral story to tell and reflect upon to whatever degree the reader desires. I borrowed it from my manager at work, and it certainly did make me reflect on some issues I was having in the workplace. I think if you have a trusting team then it would be very useful to use this book as a read and discuss activity. But beware it could be confronting for some people.
