Who moved My Cheese by Dr Spencer Johnson , 6 of 52


Well what can one say about one of the most famous career books of the last decade. I had to find out what all the hype was about and was slightly mystified as to why it was such a successful book; perhaps I am missing something obvious?
Essentially this is a very simplistic easy to read book, which no doubt appeals to many busy people – me included. I didn’t mind that it was simple, but I did feel that it was a little light on substance and dumbed down for mass consumption. I certainly understood the whole concept of moving cheese and this book has enabled me to consider how I am located in regards to my cheese. I see myself in all of the characters of the story. I think the last part of the book was useful and would have appreciated a deeper analysis of how this can be practically applied in real life.
I must say the beginning school reunion scenario, was so clumsily written and contrived that I was tempted to not continue; only reason I did was due to the fact that the book is very short.
However, with this as a caveat, I would still recommend a read through of this book, borrow it from your library. I think it is always a good idea to reflect on where you are in your life and how you could improve your world. If you have read it, I’d be interested in your thoughts to.
