Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson

The full title of this book is

Who Moved My Cheese: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life“.

In my review at Amazon.co.uk, I gave this book a rating of Four Stars. This means I think it is Good and Well Worth Reading.

Here is my book review.

An intriguing but simple parable to help people to adapt to change

This is an intriguing but simple parable to help people to adapt to change.

The problem with using parables as a teaching mechanism is that some people can be entranced by the story but just read it at the surface level. “Who Moved My Cheese?” solves this problem by having the story sandwiched between two reflections.

The first is following a school reunion when one person asks “why is it so difficult to adapt to change” and another says that they struggle until they’d heard a little story, which he then tells the group.

The main story is then followed by a discussion about what they’d learnt from the “Who Moved My Cheese?” parable and how when they faced change before, they had fallen back into some of the characters.

This book only takes about an hour to read but it is an hour well spent. It has some powerful lessons to help you look for change as is occurs and then by showing the futility of doing nothing, it helps you to prepare for and embrace change.

It does make you question what is going on but perhaps the questions should have been opened out even further.

I rate “Who Moved My Cheese?” as a four star book and recommended for reading. It certainly helps you with the “what to do” and “what not to do” when you are faced with change.

It is available to buy from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
