Who Moved My Cheese is a parable about change and our feelings when change occurs. The story is told by four characters who live in a Maze and look for “cheese”. Cheese is what we want in life: a career, family, money, a new home or car, etc.
There are two mice: Sniff and Scurry and two little people: Hem and Haw. These characters represent how we respond when change happens. Do we sniff out change early? Or do we scurry into action? Do we deny change when it happens? Or do we learn to adapt to change as we accept it may lead us to something better?
As the story unfolds and the reader learns how each character reacts to change, it’s natural to begin thinking how one responds to change. As one character successfully deals with change, he begins “the handwriting on the wall”. Through this, the author sheds light on how one can adapt to change easily.
This was a good, pratical book for teens. It deals with the subject of change and how to adapt to it. The concept is applicable to all areas of a person's life...how one goes about moving on in a certain area is entirely unique to that area and should be determined by that person in respect to where they want to go from the current position.
