I would give it 3 stars, if it was advertised as a simple, short fable. Instead, it's touted as a self help book. The entirety can be said in 1 sentence, and this book offers no advice outside of this sentence (follows):
Instead of focusing on how to win the existing game(s) that exist(s), in order to achieve success, try to take a step back and find a way to profit from the moves of everyone else playing the game(s).
The three mice also remind us that there are different motivations and different ways to break through to new levels of understanding. Often we only hear the author's view of the "right" way; this book reminds us that instead of changing, we should enhance the use of own strengths to achieve our goals.
As an aside my 9 year old picked it up and thought it was great. Accessible with a real moral to the story.

I feel cheated by the shortness of the book. The manner in which the hurdles were transcended, although representative of our internal m

Fascinating book. I read it after Who Moved My Cheese and appreciated the new perspective.Published 4 months ago by JJ
