Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, read by Tony Roberts and Karen Ziemba, with an introduction read by Kenneth Blanchard.

Who Moved My Cheese? is a simple parable that reveals profound truths. It is the amusing and enlightening story of four characters who live in a maze and look for cheese to nourish them and make them happy. Cheese is a metaphor for what you want to have in life, for example a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions, health or spiritual peace of mind. The maze is where you look for what you want, perhaps the organisation you work in or the family or community you live in. The problem is that the cheese keeps moving.

In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change in their search for the cheese. One of them eventually deals with change successfully and writes what he has learned on the maze walls for you to discover. You'll learn how to anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change and be ready to change quickly whenever you need to. 

Discover the secret of the writing on the wall for yourself and enjoy less stress and more success in your work and life.

A modern day Aesops Fable

I read this when I was a teenager and now I'm a teacher I'm going to use this to teach my students about putting meaning into their own narratives. This is a great allegory that individuals can get a lot of growth out of.

Really the most impressive, digestible little book

This is a most interesting read. Playful, easy to understand, yet the concepts are complex and educated. There are easily more than 100 principles one could pick up, it felt like after every second sentence. Anyone who is a business owner, entrepreneur, running for president, a parent, anyone really can pick up this book and benefit a great deal. Thanks Dr. Spencer for a succinct ensemble. Sally.

Good book on adapting to change!

This book was a good one, incorporating a story which always makes things interesting. The story, the discussion that followed, and the afterword by the author helped me to appreciate the importance of having a mindset that is willing to adapt to change and to sense changes in seasons and move with them rather than becoming left behind.

Okay

I read this book 15+ years ago, it was a refreshing read then. As a 'scurry' and a self-confessed change junkie, I've moved forward from this book and l understand the stress that it causes on those reluctant to change. As a short read it is worth a credit as it simplifies the complexity of change.

An enjoyable audio book

I enjoyed listening to this book.. the narrator was very good and clear. I think everyone should listen to Who Moved My Cheese at least once, including the extras! Everyone who listens to this will identify with one of the characters. Really enjoyable and easy to listen to. Five stars from me.

Accurate but old now

I think this book was brilliant at the time of publication, I agree with everything in it but it feels old, obvious and not very good value for money in 2020. The basic lesson is learn to change because if you don't you'll get left behind, in the 1970s this was probably radical thinking but I think most of us in the working world know this by now.

Great book!

The lessons from this book are life changing. I look forward to using them and managing changes as they come my way. Better to be safe and lost in a maze than to be in a cheesiness situation.
