Nah. Its one of the #1 best sellers in self help category. A tiny book that teaches you how to deal with change. I loved it when I read it first. I was in school then. It has had spoofs "I moved you cheese" which is hilarious. Do read it.

....... Where is my cheese?
....... I want more cheese?
....... I ate all my cheese, please may I have some more?
