Peaks and valleys - a book review

A great book!

'Who moved my cheese ?' was the first book I read written by Dr. Spencer Johnson. What an awesome book it was! Enjoyed it so many times over all these years. Now another gem...'Peaks and valleys'!

The story revolves around a wise old man and a young chap about tackling successfully the low downsides in life and to make use of it too work for our own good both in work and life. It also details how we can enjoy more while at the peak, prolong this phase as well as to prepare ourselves to deal with the inevitable valley life in a better way.

Simply written, sure you all will enjoy this motivational book.

  • While at the peak, at the pinnacle of a career, basking in the glory of limelight we may not think how lonely it can become when a crisis hits. Books like these give hope, restore confidence and provide great help when nothing seems working.

Thanks Shirley :)
It is a wonderful book. I enjoyed reading it. Dr Johnson is a talented writer. All the books by him are awesome. He is the co-author of 'One minute manager'.

If this is any near as good as the first book, it must be excellent.

Hi George, 'Who moved my cheese' was awesome ! I felt this also the same. We all think some people are 'lucky', 'got an awesome break', 'were at the right place at the right time with the right people' etc. and this book explains their secret how they tackled their ' valley lives' and made that bad phase too to their own prosperity.
Thanks George :)

Looks like a nice book to read when trying to face the world again with confidence after being completely knocked down after success. Right?
