Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice--nonanalytical and nonjudgmental, they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are "littlepeople," mouse-size humans who have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It's not just sustenance to them; it's their self-image. Their lives and belief systems are built around the cheese they've found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our livelihoods--our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in--although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships. The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese, and be prepared to go running off in search of new sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.
Dr. Johnson, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and many other books, presents this parable to business, church groups, schools, military organizations--anyplace where you find people who may fear or resist change. And although more analytical and skeptical readers may find the tale a little too simplistic, its beauty is that it sums up all natural history in just 94 pages: Things change. They always have changed and always will change. And while there's no single way to deal with change, the consequence of pretending change won't happen is always the same: The cheese runs out. --Lou Schuler

I m happy to review & recommend this book to read.
Author has painted this story by using d same brush which was used for Rabbit & Tortoise story, but this one has many colours, some merging into another & some contrast to each other. Maintained simplicity though to show big picture.
Michael is sharing this story to his few classmates after lunch, having attended their highschool reunion d night before.
Qualities, behaviours r characters & how our emotions & beliefs can make impact on our decisions while reacting to changes & being afraid of changes & more importantly denial of d same r explained very well.
Haw's journey to find new cheese, when d existing pile of cheese vanishes from the section, teaches us to grow & shine even in d failures. He keeps on writing on d wall about his past & present experiences during his search in d maze of labyrinth for new cheese.
Story starts with d search of daily cheese with 2 mice following KISS (Keep It Simple & Straight) strategy with their natural instinct & ability (merging colours) & 2 little people with their brain capability (contrast to each other). They keeps on getting their cheese everyday after searching it thoroughly in d maze.
One day they found a section of abundant cheese & noticed that every morning new cheese is also being kept there by someone unknown.
Yes, then little people (Hem & Haw) decides to move their home permanently there. Author describes d feeling of security, arrogance of richness in d minds of little people (Hem & Haw) & unchanged behaviour of 2 mices (Sniff & Scurry).
One day due to not paying attention to d small changes that had been taking place each day, unprepared for what they found is No cheese at their section & Hem shouting loudly “Who moved my cheese?”. Before that, Mice group following their natural instinct had left d spot in search of new cheese, without reacting on no cheese at that section. Eventually after their efforts, Mices found what they had been looking for: fresh & new cheese section which is bigger & with lots of variety of cheese.
Hem & Haw out of stock & hungry, spent so many days in waiting to get cheese some day there itself. Haw decides to move on, but failed to convince Hem, he leaves Hem by writing down on d wall for Hem, “If u do not change u can become extinct” speaks a lot.
Hem's old beliefs of following old path even after continuous failure & then Haw's weakness in search of cheese due to time spent at old section. He comes to know that may be ‘he thought MORE about what could go wrong than what could go right’, this needs to be read carefully with word MORE in it.
Haw after finding traces of new cheese station, decides to go back to see if Hem is there in old section & ready to join. But Hem wanted to have his old cheese only & not ready to even taste it. Haw had to return to d new cheese station leaving Hem alone & he settled down at new cheese station with alertness to surroundings this time.
Well, what happened to hem ? Story ends, where Haw listens some sound. Then author opens door for readers & listeners of d story for fruitful discussion. The discussion is explained separately, which is actually main part to read now. Actually writer has given liberty to readers & listeners through discussion & Re-View. As far as Hem's part, some say those people will not change, some say he might HV changed. As far as my experience with Hems. There r 2 types of such Hems I HV faced so far. One types of HV thinking ‘not to fix until it breaks down completely’ & other types of, wants to be saved by God directly & solution sold occur miraculously. For me story never ends even if Hem decides to change with d situation & returns to Haw, point is that will Hem literally learns & become vigilant to change even then, just like Haw has became even after finding
new cheese section.
Well, I will keep on trying for Hem, if I HV special feelings in my heart for Hem, at least until, there is agreemental reflection of friendship in d behaviour of Hem. my brain might do calculations of staying away from Hem, but my heart will always put me back behind Hem, knowing no one is there to take care of Hem. But Author had to do justice with d natural flow of story to show Haw trying twice & then eventually leaving Hem to make him realize & then change on his own.
The discussion that happens between friends after d story, speaks more ways about change at every level, should read that to understand what change means.
I want to give solid 5 gold star rating. & This story will definitely help me in my new year resolution.
Maze and cheese story was bit too stretched out, often repeating the same point in different ways. But overall a good read.
