500 Days Of Summer.


Some blogs recently suggested that fiction titles were better sources of business advice than the traditional non-fiction tomes.

Accordingly I was going to recommend the new movie 500 Days of Summer as a guide to the futility of trying to match your product/service with people who are just not interested. But that's not why you go to movies, so I leave what you take from it up to you.

I'll simply recommend it highly and, in line with the impact of previous recommendations here, I expect its success further to confirm my influencer status.

Who suggested it ... and why? Not in the sense of 'justifying their view', but in the sense of what happened to make a number of blogs express this particular point of view.

Not sure who suggested it and certainly not sure who was first, but I would think the usual copying inmterconnectedness of blogging would explain how it spread and the why is pretty much down to disenchantment with business books and the connection between the human condition and insights.
