Coping Mechanism is Tony Wood's second collection of poetry. It marks a shift in focus from his favourite pastime of skateboarding to a broader subject area which includes mental health and wellbeing. This is an honest, open and at times hard-hitting collection of writings from the Skatebard.
"Tony's work is passionate, honest and accessible. The sort of poetry I wish I'd discovered at a much younger age, as it would have inspired my to put pen to paper much earlier. I believe he's on the cusp of inspiring a new generation of young poets." Mat Lloyd - spoken word artist & author
