Review

"Katie Vaz's charming and delightful illustrations will resonate with introverts who are trying desperately to find a balance between social time and their need for solitude. Whether you struggle with devising the right excuse to leave a crowded party early, or are in dire need of strategies to avoid small talk with the chatty neighbor, Katie's new book has got you covered. It is filled with oh-so-relatable moments accompanied with witty and helpful tips on how to plan your smooth escape. I wish I had this book sooner. It would have saved me a lot of angst from awkward social situations!”
Debbie Tung, author of Quiet Girl in a Noisy World

“This book is so cute and fun! Katie Vaz has given us a fun little how-to guide for all those moments when we’re trapped in a situation with *gasp* another human, and have to find a way out without socializing. It’s a wonderful addition to the introvert cartoon collection.”
 
Book Riot

“An extra amount of solitude is necessary for us to feel sane, yet finding ways to explain that to extroverts can be tricky. Just because we don’t want to go doesn’t mean we don’t like them. That can be hard to get across kindly. Here are some cheeky cover stories for when “I just want to be home” isn’t going to cut it.”
Elephant Journal

“Overlooked for years — just as they would prefer! — this personality type is literally all around you just waiting to find merchandise that speaks to just them.”
 
Stationery Trends

“Katie and I discuss her newest book, The Escape Manual for Introverts which is hilarious and honest, and not only do I love the book, but my son has taken to it so much and even kissed one of the characters yesterday.”
The Rainy Day Diaries podcast --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and charming with the perfect amount of sass
Reviewed in the United States on 5 September 2019
Light-hearted and clever, this little book gets so many comments and flip-throughs from visitors who see my book shelf.

The art is charming and makes me smile every time I open it. Lots of little details to enjoy, and a great gift for fellow introverts. It's sweet and kind-hearted but with the perfect amount of sass and humor. I love that the author separates out scenarios by "five chapters of familiarity: friends, relatives, coworkers, acquantainces, and strangers." For people you like and care for, she suggests sweet ways to reschedule quality time with them. Once you get to the "strangers" section, the escapes get more outlandish and fun... jet packs! Seasonal camouflage! Hired kidnappers!

Get this book and enjoy a cozy hour of perusing lovely art, thoughtful details, and grin-inducing scenarios and escapes. A huge bonus: this is a great bookshelf/coffee table conversation starter!
