“You Only Get One Life”

Viral video producer Briony Benjamin was a few months into a new job when she started feeling crappy… All. The. Time. Doctors told her she was just stressed and should rest more and learn to meditate. But it turns out she had cancer… all through her body.

Turning the camera on herself, Briony started documenting her journey in the short video ‘You Only Get One Life’. Its raw portrayal of her experience went viral, touching millions.

In her first book ‘You Only Get One Life’ Briony shares some of the important lessons learnt through her illness and recovery – everything from how to assemble your A Team in times of crisis and learning to make friends with the pain, to happy hacks for cutting yourself some slack and some great tips on being a kick-arse support human when a friend is going through the rough stuff.

If you want to live the richest version of your life, bring some more joy into your day-to-day existence and have some tools up your sleeve for when things get tricky, this book is for you. 

Because – spoiler alert – we all have to deal with our fair share of tough times sooner or later. It’s how we handle them and bounce back afterwards that really matters.

Life Is Tough book


Going through cancer treatment was life-changing.
So I wrote a book.

So many of us experience life-disrupting events. I wrote a book about mine, to help you through yours. Most life-disrupting events don’t come with a ‘how to deal’ handbook. So I wrote one.
