With over 2.5 million copies sold worldwide, Who Moved My Cheese? is a simple parable that reveals profound truths
It is the 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, for example a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions, health or spiritual peace of mind. The maze is where you look for what you want, perhaps the organisation you work in, or the family or community you live in. The problem is that the cheese keeps moving.
In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change in their search for the cheese. One of them eventually deals with change successfully and writes what he has learned on the maze walls for you to discover. You'll learn how to anticipate, adapt to and enjoy change and be ready to change quickly whenever you need to.
Discover the secret of the writing on the wall for yourself and enjoy less stress and more success in your work and life. Written for all ages, this story takes less than an hour to read, but its unique insights will last a lifetime.

According to this book, 2 mice, Sniff and Scurry were sophisticated enough to get new Cheese. On the other hand, 2 Littlepeople, Hem and Haw got agitated because the Cheese at Cheese Station C, where they felt comfortable, disappeared out of the blue. At first, they gradually ran out of their energies, not knowing what to do next. However, Haw began to think twice as he wrote the messages on each wall for Hem. Therefore, Haw got back on his feet again and found New Cheese at Cheese Station N, where he could be friends with Sniff and Scurry! What happened to Hem? He was so stubborn that he dwelled on Cheese Station C, where no cheese existed.
Unfortunately, nobody can tell whether Hem would change his mind. But everybody in this story would feel happier, if Hem decided to get New Cheese instead of sticking to Old one! Anyway, I'd say no one can promise what you have is always useful forever, because everything changes in the world.
