I Moved Your Cheese

3.23 of 5 stars 3.23  ·  rating details  ·  348 ratings  ·  32 reviews
The problem with most self-help titles is that they expect you to do all the work. Not this self-help book. This book is for people who want to take no steps at all. This is the humorous self-help book for people lying on the sofa.
Paperback, 96 pages
Published June 1st 2010 by New Holland Australia(AU) (first published December 1st 2002)

The book is cool, it discuss major problems with the concept of who moved my cheese, indeed it's not against it but it's an upgraded version, the books reminds you that you could be in someone else's maze looping in a maze that shouldn't exist from the beggining

I really recommend it

رغم أني ممن يكتبون حول تطوير الذات ، و هذا الكتاب يسخر من هؤلاء و من مريديهم إلا أن أفكاره رائعة جدااااا لتطوير الذات ... خمس نجوم :)
انصح بقراءته و يوجد منه نسخة عربية

This is one of the funniest books I've read in along time, it is the lazy mans answer to self help books...
"Self help books are damaging to the self esteem. They promise to help you, but really they mock you. They build up your expectations, and then they leave you feeling low and craven and flinching at loud noises and sudden movements"

The mantra of the book is simple, "anything can be faked" So you're not mysterious, charming, intelligent or goodlooking, you can still bluff it. Darrel writes a

The first thing that I did after finishing this book(which incidentally took a lot of effort)- was to google Darrel Bovey. For someone who claimed to be like "us", he's quite a handsome man and facing flak for plagiarism. Now, about the book. The book is silly, writing style is rather juvenile, is full of references from other self help books- including, you guessed it - the title. But it drives home a point - in being an anti self help book - where it says, it's okay to suck. Which I totally ag ...more

I've read book on russian, so take a note that authors message might be over exaggerated there. However, I enjoyed book a lot. Expirience was like reading one of J.R. Harry Potter book, it wont answer much, just motivate you/inspire hope. At least that how it felt. I can't say much but this small book surely did deliver a lot.

didn't add much to me, i agree with some parts and strongly disagree with other parts, specially when he says that there is no such a thing as fate ..
the story line was OK, till the part when Zed walked through the wall, it turned silly afterwards ..

A not so appreciable satire on self help books. Crass, Senseless and below the belt
Mai Caulfield
Este libro ha logrado amargarme el día.
Es una supuesta sátira de los manuales de autoayuda, a la que yo personalmente no le encuentro la gracia. Muchas de las bromas resultan bastante estúpidas.
Basicamente todo lo que dice es que da igual como uno sea, que a la gente le gustará lo que se imagine de ti, así que finge lo suficiente para parecer interesante y deja que los de tu alrededor hagan el resto. Habla de las personas como seres vacíos, y te invita a no tener ninguna profundidad.
Una hora no

Who is Darrel Bristow-Bovey? But I love cheese.

comprei a pensar que fosse o livro "Quem mexeu no meu queijo?"

One of the funniest books I have ever read. Highly recommended to me and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have saliva on their pages from bursting out in laughter every so often.

My advice: maybe use a clear plastic sheet while reading because my copy is rather grossly soaked.
Elmie
Funniest book ever! Had me in stitches. I can see how others might not agree, but this sarcastic humour is hilarious and he even manages to slip in a few fundamental life lessons and I kept thinking: " oh, I have to remember that one!" Great quotes. Great, lighthearted read.
Narita
Probably i picked a wrong book..!!
But ya, i definitely adore the author for this audacious attempt at demeaning the self help books and their authors.. many may think like him, but few dare to express... kudos for his boldness, but sorry, the book didn't help me in any way...

Tried to be funny. Ended up just being silly. Glad it was as short as it is.
Phil
The book's point/message is OK...but obvious (to me). If you read some reviews that summarize the point of the book, reading the book may not do much more for you. Since I couldn't award 1.5 stars, I rounded up.

Debido a que no me atraen los libros de autoayuda y me gusta la ironía, este libro me hizo pasar ratos agradables, sin embargo, no deja de ser autoayuda. Me quedo con algunas cosas que me parecieron interesantes.

I love the 'wisdom' very much.

I am disappointed. I am the architect of my own dismay."

a must read for all those who love to hate the sanctimonious self-aggrandizing self-help booksssssssss.
Kia
