Out of the Maze is the post humous sequel to Who Moved My Cheese It s short and doesn t mince words while addressing questions left over from the first book, namely, how can I adapt Most of the book covers Haw, the Littleperson who s looking for cheese in the maze and is struggling to find it Haw has to address where he s at, and after finding Hope, he s able to move on toward success I think it s a great guide for those who feel trapped where they re at.
