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.

Classic Motivation

it's the simplest of books that you will ever find that will positively motivate you to make a change, accept change and believe that change is constant.
a fantastic read, can be read over many times and the same excitement is felt each time. read it at different stages in your life and you will get a different perspective each time....remember....It's Cheese time everytime, you just have to see it that way!!

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.

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.

Why did I wait so long!!??

I've had this book recommended to me so many times! Yet for some reason I never quite got around to it. Oh how I wish I'd looked at audible before. This was my first audible purchase and it has not let me down.. however the next one has big footsteps to follow in. A very enlightening and interesting book which challenges mindset on a really simplistic yet not demeaning way. Really well written and if I'm honest the type of book that should be read by everyone!

Wonderful book. Initially I thought it a boring college story. By the time the book completed I feel it is a book need to listen by everyone once in their life time.

Brilliant and Practically Transformational.

Loved it. Reading it again with my family of children under 10yrs and hubby and would share with some groups I lead. Thoroughly enjoyed the style of writing and how practical the principles were discussed qt the gathering. Brilliant. Loved it. Would love to do an audio like this.

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.

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.

Incredibly powerful!

This book was recommended by a friend during a time when I had to make a big decision and change in my career of 25 years. The story is incredibly powerful and helped me to tap into my internal ability to cross the "fear stage" of my decision making process. Have already recommended this book to many of my friends and connections!
