Book Review: Who Moved My Cheese?
This is a review from my Favorite Books List; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.
“This timeless allegory reveals profound truths to individuals and organizations dealing with change.”
I had heard of Who Moved My Cheese already before I saw it on the bookshelf in a friend’s place back in college (this is one of very few favorite books which I do not actually own — hence me forgetting about it when compiling my books list, until now). Being that the book is quite small — about 50 pages in big print with illustrations — I borrowed it and read it in 20 minutes. And the lesson of this book will always apply to anyone’s real life.
From author Spencer Johnson’s website:
This timeless allegory reveals profound truths to individuals and organizations dealing with change. We each live in a “Maze”, a metaphor for the companies or organizations we work with, the communities we live in, the families we love places where we look for the things we want in life, “Cheese”. It may be an enjoyable career, loving relationships, wealth, or spiritual peace of mind. With time and experience, one character eventually succeeds and even prospers from the change in his “Maze”.In an effort to share what he has learned along the way, he records his personal discoveries on the maze walls, the “Handwriting on the Wall”. Likewise, when we begin to see the “writing on the wall”, we discover the simplicity and necessity of adapting to change.
