This review is from: Who Moved My Cheese?: An A-Mazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life (Hardcover)
...many of them focus on how this book would be useful for corporate "brainwashing" of the rank-and-file to accept any change forced upon them...while it's true the this is a potential use of a book such as this, it misses the point. You can be happier and healthier by forseeing, preparing for, and adjusting to change than by fighting it. Yes, it may be wrong for managers to make seemingly-random changes at any whim that takes them, but grousing about it doesnt accomplish anything. Even taking steps to make changes inside your organization in reaction to the change is still better for you (and your organization) than doing nothing or complaining - there is a difference between complaining in your cube alone or with co-workers (usually pointless as it leads to no change beyond angering all concerned even further) and talking to superiors about the change and modifying your environment accordingly. This book does a wonderful job of illustrating this in a clear, concise format that is a quick and enjoyable read.
