Exit Strategies: The Perfect Excuse for Any Social Situation – David Jacobson | A Book Review

Title: Exit Strategies: The Perfect Excuse for Any Social Situation

Author: David Jacobson

Genre: Humour

About the book: It’s a short, funny read about different excuses to get out of social situations like work meetings, blind dates, and everything in between.

First impressions: A friend gifted the book to me a while back, and I finally got around to reading it cover to cover rather than just skimming through. The cover is basic and simple, but the title gives readers an idea of what to expect.

Content: The book is broken up into two sections with Plan A being avoidance (how to say “no”) and Plan B being the art of extrication (how to say “gotta go now”). There’s also an index at the back.

Quote:

“Outlive everybody—granted, a bit tricky given the role of genes and the environment.”

Writing: The writing is short and concise. I like how the social situations have different excuses, some are more realistic while others are more ridiculous or hilarious. It’s about 80 pages long and not difficult to get through at all. I noticed a couple of spelling mistakes here and there.

Final thoughts: I love how the book ends with escaping your own funeral. Overall, I wouldn’t have minded if it was longer in length. If you’re looking for excuses to get out of social situations, you’ll get some interesting ideas from Exit Strategies: The Perfect Excuse for Any Social Situation.
