15 More Must-Read Business Books That Could Change Your Life

Who Moved My Cheese?: 
An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life 
by Spencer Johnson

If there’s one thing the Great Recession has taught us, it’s that change can happen in an instant. And sometimes it’s not for the better. But change is inevitable and learning how to navigate changes at work and in your personal life is a great business skill to develop.

In this 1998 book, author Spencer Johnson uses cheese as a metaphor for jobs, careers and relationships. Its goal is to not only break the hard news that change will come no matter how hard you resist it, but also to show that when your cheese goes missing you can bounce back by adjusting your attitude and letting go.
