161 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Who Moved My Cheese? Dr. Spencer Johnson realizes the need for finding the language and tools to deal with change?an issue that makes all of us nervous and uncomfortable. Most people are fearful of change because they don't believe they have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change. When the Y2K panic gripped the corporate realm before the new millenium, most work environments finally recognized the urgent need to get their computers and other business systems up to speed and able to deal with unprecedented change. And businesses realized that this was not enough: they needed to help people get ready, too. Spencer Johnson has created his new book to do just that. The coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager has written a deceptively simple story with a dramatically important message that can radically alter the way we cope with change. Who Moved My Cheese? allows for common themes to become topics for discussion and individual interpretation. Who Moved My Cheese? takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future and shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively

Now, Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson have written The New One Minute Manager to introduce the book's powerful, important lessons to a new generation. In their concise, easy-to-read story, they teach readers three very practical secrets about leading others--and explain why these techniques continue to work so well.
