Who moved my cheese?

Has anyone read the book "Who moved my cheese".
I sometimes wonder if it might be relevant to our lifestyle.
A link to the book on Amazon is here :-

At my last job it was required reading. It is a good book, pretty short and easy to read. It does help you realize how easy it can be to deal with change.

I thought you might have posted that because of all the changes with the new software. Good timing, because with the upgrade, some cheese was certainly moved!

I also was required to read it in my sales career. I'll save you the time. It basically says if faced with a challenging change in your life, use your energy adapting to it instead of bitching and moaning about it. All of course presented in the fashion of a mouse who's cheese is no longer in its usual spot.

Been my experience that the corporate folks roll out that book / training video just prior to announcing the next round of layoffs or pension reductions.
