‘That quote by old head Arnold Old really hits the nail on the head, which just leaves it for me to give a younger generation slant on the merits of this new book. ‘D© The Low-Commotion’ is a book about a hobby and more: it’s about a child who followed that hobby. In 18 ‘Swinging Sixties’ chapters the author takes us through the first six years of his teens, showing - step by step – how effectively a hobby increases a person’s happiness, culminating in a final chapter dedicated to that happy subject. If ‘The Child is father of the man’ as Wordsworth writes in his poem, then happy children should make happy adults, the enthusiastic pursuit of a hobby in childhood should mean greater happiness in adulthood. For those who don’t, as well as for those who do have a hobby – be it playing tiddlywinks, keeping tarantulas, collecting beer mats of simply being ‘grumpy’. David Shankland offers a different route (66A) to happiness. I don’t want to give anything away but let me give you a clue: his hobby has something to do with smoking, but it’s NOT cigars! To tell you all about it he now invites you – along with Helen Shapiro and 17 other 60’s favourites – to join him as he goes ‘Walking back to Happiness’.
