Be the change you want to bring!
I personally feel that this is an amazing book to read. It presents small situations in parables.

As change is inevitable, one must start counting on it, much before it can be seen.

We can be the mice, who are non-judgmental and analytical, or can be judgmental and experience the change waiting.

Such are the people in this mortal world, who either anticipate change in advance, and there are some who change in the experience.

Hence, one can be the change, if one wants to!

Who Moved My Cheese?
   Change can be a good thing or a curse, depending on your point of view. A person’s life changed dramatically in his/her lifestyle or work. Luckily a book was written by Dr. Spencer Johnson to help you discover how to deal with change, so that you can enjoy less stress and more success in your work and in your life. This book takes less than a hour to read, but van change you forever. Dr. Spencer Johnson is the author and co-author of the number one best-selling books about dealing with change. The novel Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr. Spencer Johnson M.D. was excellent because it was well written with its unique insights and it also describes the secrets of how to anticipate change and adapt to change, as well as enjoying success in a career and in life.
   In fact, this book was written by one of the best authors who has helped millions of people discover simple truths they can use to enjoy healthier lifestyles. The book delivers unique insights and phrases helping the reader deal with stress and changes of everyday life. Dr. Spencer Johnson has changed the lives of many people whether it is struggling in a job or getting a peace of mind. There also is a very tricky part to this book, and that is how the author uses metaphors throughout the book. For example the word “cheese” is a metaphor used for a decent job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or peace of mind. Basically the story is about two mice named Sniff and Scurry and two “little people” named Hem and Haw. In the story all of the characters live in a maze, which is a metaphor for where you look for what you want, or the family or community you live in. The characters are faced with unexpected changes. Eventually, Haw deals with the change successfully and writes about his journey and how he accomplished it.
   For this reason, the four characters undergo one of the biggest turn points in their lives. The four had found a great deal of cheese. They thought they had enough cheese forever and ever, but time based by and the cheese got shorter and shorter. Eventually, they ran out of cheese. The two mice went to go look for more yet the two little people waited for more cheese to come. The cheese never came and the little people become arrogant and selfish. This book makes the reader reflect on his or her own personal life. Many people have benefited from reading this book such as corporations, governmental agencies, small businesses, churches and schools and hospitals. In fact, the whole first section of the book is filled with how people solved their problems after reading this 94-page book. The book also describes what types of change there are. For example losing your job, or your company shutting down. The little phrases used in the book guide you to settle your perfect future. The phrases are the key parts to the book, since they teach you how to handle the future. Many peoples future would be to have a successful career and a caring family.
   Similarly, This book is an amazing way to deal with success in your work and in your life. The book put emphasis on using what you learned for day-to-day life. The most important parts to this book were the phrases the author used. Some of the phrases were: what would you do if you weren’t afraid, the quicker you let go of old cheese the sooner you find new cheese, if you do not change you can become extinct, and much more. The last section of the book is a group having a discussion about the book. They relate the book to their personal lives, and discover ways to get better at turning change into a good thing.
   Overly, this book was well written. Dr. Johnson clearly stated how change affects every on and can be a positive thing. This book demonstrates the ability to turn a persons life around. I recommend this book for people struggling with change in their lives.

This was a wonderful book even if it is $20 to tell me that change happens and I should change because there are people that dont even accept that change is needed in life.

Great Book
Judy Star

I really enjoyed the plot: it kept me going right up until the end. What a dynamite way to say get going the best is yet to come.
I am a 50 year old woman between jobs and I am highly motivated by this book. When I think of all the time Ive wasted .It has given me insight to my own thought processes and how to better myself. Such a dynamite motivator. Makes me jealous of those survival instincts some of us come born with. I think if only I could be so lucky, and I wish life could be as simple as its portrayed. I couldn't put this book down until I had devoured every bit of it. The lessons in this book could be applied to every change in one's life. I'm a 50 year old woman in between jobs and it gave much insight into my situation and what direction I should be headed in. Thanks to Mr. Johnson for the sharing of this powerful lesson.
Chris
