Summary:

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.

    A very powerful message described in such a simple and clear way. I enjoyed it!

  • Christine C

    Narration was great, but the key messages are even greater. Such an amazing tale that makes so much sense.

  • Colette O

    Loved this book. Very simple but powerful message. Thank you.

  • Paul Gordon

    This is a very worthwhile book on change and how we embrace, or fail to embrace change. I think the story of Who Moved My Cheese delivers excellent messages. I do not however recommend this 10th Anniversary Edition unless you are particularly into hearing the whole story of the book's genesis and the author's commentary.

    I didn't think I would like this book... I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned some things I didn't know before

    Yes, this book is worth reading! It is easier if you can stand back from your work or right as you start a new job.

    Honestly, I have been encouraged to read this book for a couple of years. I got it at the library and couldn't put it down. It is a fast read, but so insightful as to how we humans become so entrenched in our lives and never step out to search for the cheese! I loved this book and I highly recommend it.

    Not a "must read" like it is so good you cna't afford to miss it, but rather a must read like if you are in managment it is something you almost have no choice but to read. The parable itself is the only value here. Naration is ok, but the other parts make it hard to get to the . . . well . . . cheese.

    WOW. This book is well read and a story for the ages.

    The book takes a while to get to the point with many introductions before the actual parable starts. The parable itself although short is somewhat repetitive with many examples repeated. I like the message of being proactive for change, it's just the delivery that was somewhat frustrating.
