While I enjoyed Dr. Johnson's book, I must say I REALLY got a tremendous laugh out of the new parody of his book! "Who Cut the Cheese? An A-Mazing Parody About Change...and How We Can Get Our Hands on Yours" (Crown) is a hilarious spoof of all aspects of the original book. They've even got a website at www.CutCheese.com where you can get a good feel for the book. I'm betting "Who Cut the Cheese?" (by "Stilton Jarlsberg, MD") will be a hugely popular gag gift come holiday time!

Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can
come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is
a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice--nonanalytical and nonjudgmental,
they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Hem and Haw are "littlepeople," mouse-size humans who
have an entirely different relationship with cheese. It's not just sustenance to them; it's their self-image. Their lives and belief
systems are built around the cheese they've found. Most of us reading the story will see the cheese as something related to our
livelihoods--our jobs, our career paths, the industries we work in--although it can stand for anything, from health to relationships.
The point of the story is that we have to be alert to changes in the cheese, and be prepared to go running off in search of new
sources of cheese when the cheese we have runs out.
Dr. Johnson, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and many other books, presents this parable to business, church groups,
schools, military organizations--anyplace where you find people who may fear or resist change. And although more analytical and
skeptical readers may find the tale a little too simplistic, its beauty is that it sums up all natural history in just 94 pages: Things
change. They always have changed and always will change. And while there's no single way to deal with change, the consequence
of pretending change won't happen is always the same: The cheese runs out.
