BIG THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES.
With just 39 odd pages, this amazingly written amusing story tells you so much in such a simple way!
Two mice and two little people with distinct personality traits are on a hunt in a maze for cheese. Cheese is used as a metaphor for different worldly things. These characters react to situations in their own unique way. They are adaptive, fearful, proactive and courageous. They find their cheese in the maze in different ways!
It’s very easy to relate ourselves to one of the above four characters at any given point of time. Most of us read similar teachings/things in so many self-help books or hear them from people in real lives. But, sometimes the way some information is presented surely does make a lot of difference to the impact it has on us. That’s what this book had in it for me! Loved the analogies and the small messages written on cheese blocks throughout the book!
You’ll not loose anything by spending time on this quick-read (I read it in under one hour!!) but the effect might be huge! You’ll love it if you struggle to embrace a change, are fearful, over think the situations or simply in denial of these! Even if you think you have a perfect, thought-of, balanced, content life, it’s worth a read.
So, don’t let the non-reader in you discourage you and go for it! If you need the soft-copy, just leave your email in comments!
