My new book!

Simply Blunderful: A cancer survivor’s illustrated guide to flaming tennis balls, camping catastrophes and the many obstacles life throws our way

Coming spring 2022!


From climate change to clashes with co-workers, obstacles come in all shapes and sizes. The biggest one Josh Martin ever faced was an aggressive blood cancer. To beat the odds, he’d need to draw on many important lessons he learned from a lifetime of blunderful misadventures. 

This handbook is packed with laugh-out-loud true stories, as well as practical advice to help you through whatever challenge you might be facing. Find out what duct-taping a duffel bag to his brother’s back taught Josh about quick fixes. Or what digging wells in Africa taught him about getting to the root of a problem. Or what multiple run-ins with Bill Clinton’s security detail taught him about adaptability

It’s self-help with a sense of humour. Because personal development tips are far more memorable when they come with a punchline.
