All About I Moved Your Cheese: For Those Who Refuse to Live as Mice in Someone Else's Maze (BK Business)
With more than twenty-five million copies in print, Who Moved My Cheese? has become a phenomenon. It does offer some reasonable advice about adapting to change. It’s certainly true that some of the events shaping our lives are beyond our control, and instead of struggling against them we must adapt and move on. But for all its good intentions, it ultimately advises us to unquestioningly accept our circumstances without exploring any possible alternatives—like mice in a maze mindlessly chasing after cheese.I Moved Your Cheese takes a different point of view and offers an alternative approach. Harvard Business School professor and bestselling author Deepak Malhotra tells an inspiring story about a new generation of mice who begin to challenge assumptions and ask important questions. Rather than just accepting their situation and dutifully chasing the cheese, Max, Zed, and Big begin looking deeper, examining and reassessing what they’ve been told are their limitations, and set out to chart a new course.Innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, problem solving, and business growth— as well as personal growth—depend on the ability to challenge accepted notions, reshape the environment, and play by a different set of rules: our own. We are not powerless to change our circumstances. We can control our destiny. By ana- lyzing our assumptions about the limitations we seem to face, we can, like Max, Zed, and Big, discover how to overcome them. But first we need to understand the ways we unknowingly hold ourselves back. As Zed explains to Max, “The problem is not that the mouse is in the maze but that the maze is in the mouse.”

3Who Moved My Cheese is Better
By mannmann
Notably, this book is written by an acclaimed Harvard professor with a long track record of teaching world-beater MBAs. In this connection, "I Moved Your Cheese" is excellent for those with an independent bent and a long-term view. It doesn't replace or vitiate "WMMC," though. For those in lower or middle management, staff or administrative positions, or those in pending or imminent risk of being displaced or eliminated, WMMC is a better paradigm for understanding and leveraging the concept of change. In the abstract, it's great to suffuse oneself with an attitude of a world beater (as espoused in "IMYC"), but in these perilous times where the world indeed IS a maze, WMMC is more practical and comforting. If you are extraordinarily talented and/or are well-positioned in a cushy job and/or have a Harvard MBA, then by all means read and adopt the mentality advocated by this book--you will continue to go far and may be the CEO of a Fortune 500 corporation some day. If, on the other hand, you work for a company and are one of the humble, hard-working millions whose lives have been disrupted by the ongoing recession/contraction and whose very economic existence hangs by a thread, you'll find WMMC more worth your while. IMYC will probably give you a temporary mood boost...but WMMC will give you the nimble and adaptive attitude necessary to survive in these perilous times. Just my opinion. As Sun Tzu said, "invincibility lies in oneself...vincibility lies in one's opponent." In other words, play good defense, anticipate change, and move when opportunity presents itself--just as WMMC teaches.

5WMMC + Atlas Shrugged = I Moved Your Cheese
By Marc Effron
Malhorta works a bit of magic in this book by looking at the WWMC lessons through the lenses of self-reliance, innovation and perseverance. His message is an uplifting one -- stop letting others define your life and stop living within the artificial boundaries set by others for you. Where WWMC was a pean to accepting the change around you, IMYC suggests that we have the (admittedly risky) option to simply create our own maze or ignore altogether that mazes even exist. It's a miniature manifesto for motivated mice.

5Great Read for Today's World
By Lover of pics
Here is what I liked about this book. We live in a world where the level of volatility is high and trending up. This book offers a way to think about this volatility for your own life. Yes, it is good to be flexible and go with the flow. But it is also important to use critical thinking skills to understand what is making this volatility and adjust your own plans so you are in charge of your own destiny. Best of all you can read it in 1-2 hours.

As an aside my 9 year old picked it up and thought it was great. Accessible with a real moral to the story.
