In 1999, Who Moved My Cheese Inc was founded to handle the Who Moved My Cheese? book order demands from businesses. In 2005, the company was reorganized as Spencer Johnson Partners with the idea of bringing in partners and additional content from Dr. Spencer Johnson, the author. Spencer Johnson Partners focused on creating additional programs and services that would continue to help clients navigate change, including Gaining Change Skills. Then, in 2009, the company was purchased and renamed Red Tree leadership.
Who Cut The Cheese
With help from friends, an eccentric inventor and his two young associates save both Norway and the world from Swedish-speaking alien chameleons with hypnotic powers.
Having clouded the minds of everyone who watched him compete in the NoroVision Choral Throwdown on television, a mysterious figure disguising himself as singing chiropractor Hallvard Tenorsen moves into the royal palace, sends the king into exile and declares war on Denmark as a first step in chowing down on all humanity. What can the motley crew of nonTV watchers ranged against him, led by sensible young Lisa and her short but extravagantly imaginative classmate Nilly, do? Plenty, as it turns out, thanks to timely help from Nillys pet Peruvian sucking spider, the titular Fartonaut Powder , a giant sewer dwelling anaconda and other aids. Though a bit windy himself, Nesbø, author of numerous adult bestsellers, tucks enough silly antics, oddball adults and sly digs at his countrys culture and foibles into his third Doctor Proctor epic to keep even non-Scandinavians amused.
Sure signs that the creative wells are running dry at last, the Captains ninth, overstuffed outing both recycles a villain and offers trendy anti-bullying wish fulfillment.
The Fib Behind The Fable
The fact that you are reading
The Fib Behind the Fable of Who Cut the Cheese? fills me with delight. Why? Because it means that the book is now in print and that you, my friend, have bought it. Ka-ching, baby! Mr. Customers dollar, say hello to Mr. Businessmans wallet. I win. You lose.
But what if its a gift? you ask.
Fine, say I. I dont care what particular rube in your immediate circle of family and friends shelled out the cash money for this book. If it means your decrepit grandmother got fleeced out of her last remaining war bonds, so be it. Trust me, if it werent me, it would be Publishers Clearinghouse grifting her into buying ten subscriptions to Pokémon magazine.
The only person I dont want reading this foreword is the guy standing around in the bookstore waiting around for his girlfriend to buy the latest Robert Waller book. You, sir! Put this book down immediately, you pathetic sap. Not only are you a cheapskate, youre completely whipped. You disgust me. Get your ass over to the International Magazine section and pick up a copy of Romanian Playboy.
But this book is more than just a crass moneymaking opportunity for me. I remember the first time I heard Mason tell his great
cheese story years ago. The two of us were stuck on a crowded elevator and I passed wind loudly. A few embarrassed titters turned into muffled groans as the noxious fumes quickly proved that cheesy poofs need not be silent to be deadly.
