'Who moved my job?' is a delightful, beautifully written book; an easy to understand story tackling a very complex subject. It should become a 'must read' for every child in the UK to understand how globalisation affects their world and crucially what the implications will be for them. The reader is carried on an adventure with the three dogs who lose their home and employment and are cast out into a world they don't know. Suffering rejection and hardship and driven by fear, they work together as a team to find a new life in which their existing skills can be used but they've understood how to adapt to the new surroundings in their lives. It's both moving, educational and delivers with it a very important message for young and old who do not yet understand what globalisation actually means. I'm buying copies my godchildren, nieces, nephews in the hope they too can learn from this book and start to plan what they need to do to be competitive in the new global economy.
An excellent read and one where I was unable to put the book down. I would strongly recommend that everyone reads this. Well worth taking time out of the busy day to do this. Mark Kobayashi-Hilary, the author, has a way of writing that is extremely easy to follow. He has the knack of ensuring the complex is made that much easier to understand and follow. So stop reading this and go and order your own copy. I'm not going to lend mine out
I have to say, this book is both clever and perfectly designed for my busy lifestyle. If you want to pick up a few golden nuggets of intelligence about globalization in an easy to read short story then order a copy. Simply a joy.
