In a teaching career spanning decades, Wayne Furlong might just have seen it all. Buddha is a Punk Skater captures the life lessons learned along the way, in a look at the funny side of people and the serious issue of education. Amusing, absorbing, and philosophical – a bit like teaching, really.

Jenaka, mendalam, dan filosofis – sedikit seperti sebuah pelajaran, sungguh.
