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)

كتابٌ صغير الحجم يُقرأ في جلسة واحدة؛ مسلٍّ في أسلوبه، تجاريٌ في قصده، وسطحيٌ في طرحه، وطفيليٌ في فكرته (فقد تطفّل على كتاب "من الذي حرّك قطعة الجبنة الخاصة بي؟" الذي بنى عليه كلّ الموضوع فيما كان يبدو نقدًا وانتهى بمجرد فكرة بسيطة واحدة أن تنتقل إلى حالة أن لا متاهة!).
ولا شكَ أن أسلوب (قصة الفئران التي في المتاهة) مسلية وجميلة وجاذبة للقاريء، وتجعل من الكتاب نافعًا لجيل الأطفال كمادة تدريبية على التفكير في إدارة الحياة.

Una manera muy graciosa de decirnos porque los manuales de autoayuda no sirven. Un libro muy ameno y que te arranca sonrisas por su sarcasmo...y obviamente, como libro de autoayuda es una porquería. Que no lo digo yo, su autor nos hace ver todas las razones por las que no funciona. En fin, divertido, ameno y no sirve para nada jajaja

Its a very different kind of book, making mockery of self-help books. The level of sarcastic comments is too high and many good examples are given. the main point is that self help books do nothing good to yourself, your life or career. They are just a good read for passing time and helps making "dreams in the cloud" for no good.

از نگاه من کتاب پنیر تورا من جابه جا کردم به نحوی میخواست بیانگر رسیدن به اهداف با ابزار عمل یا راه حل سهل تری بنام وانمود کردن برای وانمود موفقیت و تغییر بود ...
بنحوی میخواست بفهماند رمز موفقیت در لابلای صفحات کتب موفقیت نیست .

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

كتاب ملوش اي لزمة اكثر من نصفه يهاجم الكاتب كتب التنمية البشرية علي انها ليس لها اي اهمية و ان كتابه غير تقليدي اكن واضح انه نسي يكتبه لكن يوجد قصتان رائعة فيه غير كدة تضيع للوقت

Finished in one sitting of 2 hours. Breezy read, with a easy-on-the-eyes writing style. Pretty hilarious sometimes. Although, after the whole ordeal, I was like 'What the hell did I just read.' Anyways a fun way to pass your time.

Um, no sé. Creo que estoy demasiado amargada para “disfrutar” el libro. Además, hay un par de capítulos demasiado sexistas, ugh.

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

راستش دلیلی که باعث شد جذب این کتاب بشم شهرت کتاب دیگه ای بود . شاید نام کتاب "چه کسی پنیر مرا جابه جا کرد؟" به گوش شما هم خورده باشد . برایم جالب شد بدانم چه ارتباطی بین این دو کتاب وجود دارد. مخصوصا توضیح زیر عنوان که کنجکاوی ام را بیشتر کرد : " برای آنهایی که نمیخواهند قدمی بردارند"!؟! حتی مقدمه کتاب هم کاملا جذاب نوشته شده بود. در واقع کاملا با کتابهای دیگری که در این زمینه خواندم فرق داشت. جالب اینجاست که حتی در مقدمه نویسنده قید کرده که اصلا لازم نیست این کتاب را بخوانید همین که آن را در ق ...more

Irónico, divertido, pero no por completo "redondo" libro que intenta desestimar los libros de autoayuda.

El periodista sudafricano trata de establecer una filosofía para desacreditar lo expuesto en los libros de autoayuda. Tiene muy buenas ideas, y muchos de sus comentarios son atinados, exponiendo el fraude que resultan la mayoría de los libros destinados a cambiar nuestra vida. Además, la crítica la hace con un excelente sentido del humor.

El más grave defecto es que su filosofía de "todo se pue

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

A worthy read. I thought this book was more thought-provoking than "Who Moved My Cheese?" It's more abstract and it challenges the most basic principles of why we believe things on the first place. I was hesitant when I first started reading this book, but now I can say confidently that I loved it!

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 ..

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.

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.
