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.
WMMC was written for the average person stuck in the corporate maze and subject to the whims of VPs and the winds to modern competitive forces sweeping through industry. IMYC does not address this reality because the author lives in the ivory tower of HBS, nor would it serve his purpose to even if he does realize it. Mr. Malhotra has played a bit of cat and mouse game himself, playing "ID which entrepreneur you think this mouse is, and which do you want to identify with and emulate". The admixture of entrepreneurism and with "mouse mysticism" (levitating, breaking through walls...?) became too much for me and I ended the reading by being somewhat disgusted with this semi-clever but transparent attempt by the author to vault himself into the pantheon of gurus, of a new sort, a combined Deepak Chopra mystic + HBS professor. Mostly, I was disgusted with myself for picking up this book for $14.95 and thinking it might be a good build on WMMC. Instead it's really a pep rally for entrepreneurs, which is fine for the relatively few of them vs. the population. There are other inspirational books which are less mysterious and more instructive. And a better value.
