Book Review: Who Moved My Cheese?
“Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us.” A.J. Cronin
Who Moved My Cheese? is an pivotal story of four characters who live in a ‘Maze’ and look for ‘Cheese’ to strengthen them and make them happy.
‘Cheese’ is a metaphor for what you want to have in life – whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or spiritual peace of mind. The ‘Maze’ is where you look for what you want – the organisation you work in, or the family or community you live in.
In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with change successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls.
Written for all ages, the story only takes a short time to read, but its unique insights can last for a lifetime – Let change be an advantage not a curse.
