Publishers Description
With Who Moved My Cheese? Dr. Spencer Johnson realizes the need for finding the language and tools to deal with change--an issue that makes all of us nervous and uncomfortable.

Most people are fearful of change because they don't believe they have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change.

When the Y2K panic gripped the corporate realm before the new millenium, most work environments finally recognized the urgent need to get their computers and other business systems up to speed and able to deal with unprecedented change. And businesses realized that this was not enough: they needed to help people get ready, too.

Spencer Johnson has created his new book to do just that. The coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager has written a deceptively simple story with a dramatically important message that can radically alter the way we cope with change. Who Moved My Cheese? allows for common themes to become topics for discussion and individual interpretation.

Who Moved My Cheese? takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future and shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively.

Helping to recognize how people cope with Change  Mar 14, 2007
I read this book as part of a leadership class. I don't think it has invoked any real life insight into my own life but it definitely gave me some context to see how other cope with change. "Who moved my Cheese has helped me identify the "Sniffs, Scurrys, Hems and Haws" before I "move the cheese" in my shop. Recognizing this may be over simplistic but for a new leader/manager of people it is a great place to start. My Father always told me that "Change is the only constant in life" as I grew up so I always tried to have options and keep my eyes and ears open. For some this may be a wake up call for them selves but a definite help to those who may "move cheese" or cause change for others.
Quick and basic  Mar 13, 2007
I would rank it as an entry level management read. It makes it clear that there are things in your position that you should be doing differently as a manager. If you are going to have a team start reading a book I would recommend this book as a solid entry level book to build from.
Still Excited!   Mar 8, 2007
I read this book over a year ago and I still get excited everytime I recommend it to someone else. The author takes the simplest analogy and creates a birdseye view of our lives... As you read it you start to see yourself, your life... then oh my! you start to see how who you are affects and impacts your life and those around you. A MUST read!
inspiring...but the book, as well as the movie, did not offer specific strategies or tools to deal with change!  Feb 23, 2007
Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
by Spencer Johnson

When I first came across this little book many years ago, I did not read it as I generally do not like to read 'fictional stories' in a non-fiction business book. Also, I thought that the book was too simplistic.

When I was asked, surprisingly without my prior knowledge, to facilitate a movie bearing the same title during a teen camp, I took up the challenge readily & proceeded to dissect the movie's message, together with the participants after watching it. I thoroughly enjoyed the endeavour & at the same time, learned something from the movie.

Subsequently, I returned to read this book.

In a nut shell, the story took place in a maze. Four beings lived in that maze: 'Sniff' & 'Scurry' were mice - they just wanted cheese & were willing to do whatever it took to get it. 'Hem' & 'Haw' were "little people" who had an entirely different relationship with cheese. It was not just sustenance to them; it was their self-image. Their lives & belief systems were built around the cheese they've found. One day, somebody moved the cheese & the rest of the movie carried the central philosophy of the story.

Most of us reading the story (or watching the movie) will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods - our jobs, our career paths, our physical health, our spiritual being - although it can stand for anything.

The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese, & be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.

For me, the story sums up as follows: Things change. They always have changed & always will change. Change occurs whether a person is ready or not. In order to survive in a constantly changing landscape, we must learn to anticipate - & embrace - change, & to adjust our attitude by letting go of the old, & do what we would do if we were not afraid. For things to change, first we must change!

While there's no single way to deal with change, the consequence of pretending change won't happen is always the same: The cheese runs out.

In real terms, the book, as well as the movie, although inspiring, did not offer specific strategies or tools to deal with change. Readers as well as listeners watching the movie are still left with some questions about making his or her own specific personal changes.

Nevertheless, this book, as well as the movie, (although in retrospect, the movie was much more fun to watch!) will certainly jump start your pursuit of understanding - & anticipating - the need for personal change, when things change or are changing around you.

I would recommend readers to read 'Save Yourself! Six Pathways to Achievement in the Age of Change' by Robert Gibreath. It offers more specific strategies & tools to deal with change. It is among my first few books I have owned on personal change management. I have reviewed this book on this site website.
It's a dumb book  Feb 23, 2007
It's a dumb book whose only purpose is to serve micro-managers in the workplace. I know because my micro-manager boss loved the book and I knew all he wanted was for me to say how wonderful it was. He also had a bumper sticker that said something to the effect that if you aren't the lead dog the scenery never changes. The man changed his mind with the wind and he thought this book gave him justification where there wasn't any.
