Who Moved My Cheese?

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Spencer Johnson, M.D.

Narrated By: Tony Roberts

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: April 2000

Duration: 1 hours 13 minutes


Who Moved My Cheese? Is a simple parable that reveals profound truths about change. It is an 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 -- whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or spiritual peace of mind. And "The Maze" is where you look for what you want -- the organization you work in, or the family or community you live in.

The characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with it successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls.

When you come to see "The Handwriting on the Wall," you can discover for yourself how to deal with change, so that you can enjoy less stress and more success (however you define it) in your work and in your life.

Written for all ages, the story takes a little over an hour to listen to, but its unique insights can last a lifetime.

    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.
