Few books remain on bestseller lists ten years after publication, but few books have the timeless, universal message of Who Moved My Cheese?. The tenth anniversary of this incredible #1 bestseller will both remind listeners familiar with the story and reveal to a whole new generation the unique power of this deceptively simple fable, and comes with exclusive audio material, direct from Spencer Johnson himself, that can enhance the listener's experience and appreciation of this life-changing one-of-a-kind tale.
The simple story of Who Moved My Cheese? reveals profound truths about change that give people and organizations a quick and easy way to succeed in changing times. Who Moved My Cheese? is an enlightening story of four characters who live in a "Maze" and look for "Cheese" to nourish them and make them happy. Two are mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two are mouse-size people named Hem and Haw.
"Cheese" is a metaphor for what people want to have in life - whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or spiritual peace of mind. And "The Maze" is where people look for what they want - the organization they work for, or the family or community they live in. In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with change successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls. When listeners come to see "The Handwriting on the Wall" they can discover for themselves how to deal with change and enjoy more success and less stress in their work and lives.
In the exclusive interview conducted with S&S Audio for this anniversary edition, Johnson speaks candidly on a variety of Cheese-related topics, including:
* the origins of Who Moved My Cheese?
* its incredible impact to a variety of readers and listeners
* the secret of its uniquely broad appeal and unending timeliness of its message
* insights into how to make the most of the listening experience
He also speaks for the first time about the message of his next blockbuster parable, Peaks and Valleys, and reveals how it compares to and builds upon the message of Who Moved My Cheese?
Ten years after publication, Who Moved My Cheese? is as timely and powerful the day it was published, and offered with the exclusive new material in our 10th Anniversary Edition, listeners will now be able to understand and apply its message better than ever before.
