"Who Moved my cheese"? 🧀 by Spencer Johnson, A book on adapting and coping with changes

"Who Moved My Cheese?" is a self-help book written by Spencer Johnson that was first published in 1998. The book is a parable about change, and it uses the story of four characters - two mice, named Sniff and Scurry, and two "little people," named Hem and Haw - who live in a maze and search for cheese.

The book is divided into three parts:

In the first part, the characters find a large supply of cheese and enjoy it, but one day the cheese disappears. In the second part, the characters respond to the change in different ways - Sniff and Scurry adapt and quickly search for new cheese, while Hem and Haw resist change and struggle to find new cheese. In the third part, Haw eventually overcomes his fear and hesitation and learns to adapt to change, while Hem remains stuck and ultimately becomes trapped in the maze.

The book uses the characters and their responses to change to illustrate different approaches to dealing with change in one's personal and professional life. It emphasizes the importance of being open to change, adapting quickly, and taking action to move forward when faced with challenges or unexpected changes.

"Who Moved My Cheese?" has been a popular book in the business and self-help genres, and has sold over 26 million copies worldwide. It has been translated into 37 languages and has been used by many companies and organizations as a training tool for employees dealing with change in the workplace.
