Amazon has the eBook edition of Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, Kenneth Blanchard on sale for $1.99


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004CR6AM4




THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER WITH OVER 28 MILLION COPIES IN PRINT!

A timeless business classic, Who Moved My Cheese? uses a simple parable to reveal profound truths about dealing with change so that you can enjoy less stress and more success in your work and in your life.

It would be all so easy if you had a map to the Maze.
If the same old routines worked.
If they'd just stop moving "The Cheese."
But things keep changing...

Most people are fearful of change, both personal and professional, because they don't have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Dr. Spencer Johnson, the coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager, uses a deceptively simple story to show that when it comes to living in a rapidly changing world, what matters most is your attitude.

Exploring a simple way to take the fear and anxiety out of managing the future, Who Moved My Cheese? can help you discover how to anticipate, acknowledge, and accept change in order to have a positive impact on your job, your relationships, and every aspect of your life.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

My boss had us read this earlier this year...after reading it I quit my job, handed him the book with a post-it note on the front that I wrote that said "the cheese is not in the maze", I left the rat race and started 3 businesses making 3x my previous salary and I get to see my 3 little boys everyday.
What do you do?

The Wikipedia summary of the book is better than the book.

Probably the worst book I ever read. It could be good irony gift or a gift to an enemy.

I also read this book and started three businesses. (This book was only a contributing factor to me quitting) I'm 2-1/2 years in and they are all profitable. My salary is 75% of what it was at the other place though, but I'm sure it will get there soon. I have an office, 10 employees, 3 company vehicles, and a ton of other assets.
Good for you. What type of businesses did you start? I'm getting my real estate license so will have flexibility and I want to have multiple streams of income. Laid off too many times during the .com bust and again during the real estate bubble.

I read most comments are negative. I read this book back in 2001, was an accident however this book brought lots of changes in me. I took the concepts on change management. It is still paying for me. It changed the way I look at the change coming to me, not just @ work, also on personal side. This is my experience.

In fact, I have several copies of the book and always give to my friends as gift.

Damn, you should write the sequel.

This book has been there for couple of decades and does not apply well in today's mindset. The author does not take into consideration the Generational diversity! Good read.... but don't follow every word! Take this as a single was of looking at things! BUT NOT the ONLY way to see things. The book speaks to "Change" and continuous "Change" so take it that way rather than an agenda for brain washing by HR or management.
Talking of Brain Washing.... we Americans have the TV, and the social media to do that. And it does not take much to influence us!

Propaganda needs to change with time. This dates from when they were pimping this explanation for why companies were shipping off equipment to China and Mexico and our "representatives" were taking bribes to deregulate and pass labor-oppressive trade agreements such as NAFTA.

Too many people see through that now. A stupid book like this that blames the "worker rats" for noticing that the game is rigged and they have minimal control over it doesn't fool awakened minds. After the quashing of OWS and the backwards but understandable reactionary election of Trump, the system is just going full violence on labor now. "Get a job" ya rats.

Interesting, why? Also do you have any good resources or books to understand HR propoganda or related topics?
Yes, it's called life experience.

Back in 2000, our manager gave us this book. Very shortly afterward, our stock tanked, our company was bought out, and our entire office--around 120 people--was laid off.

As others have said, if you're given this book at work, get your resume polished up and start packing up your personal belongings because the end is nigh.

i don't think that this book pro NAFTA and deregulation. this book is about shifting your paradigm. in life you will frequently find yourself in a situation when something changes, failure to adapt to changes will yield you nothing. the application of the concept is vast and up to everyone's interpretation. cheese could be:

- happy marriage that ended in divorce
- bad investment that you are still holding to
- reduction in industry demand, or increase in supply (taxi for instance)
- profession
- useless collage degree
- resistance to software updates/change
