Who Moved My Cheese? An A-Mazing Way to Change and Win
By Spencer Johnson
© 2002

This book was written for teens by Spencer Johnson. It is a parable which you will not only enjoy, but you will find the real life applications on how to approach the changes you will encounter in your life very helpful. It follows two groups of characters; two mice and two little people who all live in a maze. Their daily lives revolve around looking for cheese. If they have cheese, they are happy, however if there is not enough cheese, then they are not happy. Find out what happens when the supply of cheese, which has been in the same location, dwindles to nothing. Learn how some of them coped well while others did not cope well with this change. What would you do? Would you go out immediately and search for cheese in other locations or just sit and hope it reappears before you starve to death, This parable has helped millions of people deal with the changes in their lives from careers to marriages. At the end of the story there is a discussion among several teenagers that will help you to gain insight in how to deal with life’s changes.

My recommendation: 4 out of 5 stars
