Dispatches from the Front Line of Happiness
'Is It Just Me or Is Everything Shit?' - I've picked up this volume (by Alan McArthur and Steve Lowe, subtitled 'The Encyclopedia of Modern Life') a few times in airports and shops and found myself agreeing with much in it, but just didn't quite get over the hump of wanting a copy lying around my house. What I think I'll do now is head off to the interface of the Happiness Experiment and Is Everything Shit and send back some dispatches from the front line of happiness, looking at once at what brings happiness and what does its damndest to erode it. Tally-ho!
