Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come, written by Jessica Pan.

What would happen if a shy introvert lived like a gregarious extrovert for one year? If she knowingly and willingly put herself in perilous social situations that she’d normally avoid at all costs? Jessica Pan is going to find out. 

When she found herself jobless and friendless, sitting in the familiar Jess-shaped crease on her sofa, she couldn't help but wonder what life might have looked like if she had been a little more open to new experiences and new people, a little less attached to going home instead of going to the pub.

So, she made a vow: to push herself to live the life of an extrovert for a year. She wrote a list: improv, a solo holiday and...talking to strangers on the tube. She regretted it instantly. 

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come follows Jess' hilarious and painful year of misadventures in extroverting, reporting back from the front lines for all the introverts out there. 

But is life actually better or easier for the extroverts? Or is it the nightmare Jess always thought it would be?

Love a real life experiment

Interesting with some insights that can be applied in daily lives without being a self help or how to book

It's not that bad but it made me feel worse...

I'm a happy introvert and I expect an easy and funny story of venturing out to the wild world. I didn't get it, instead I started questioning myself again, I just couldn't help myself but feel that extraverted life was superior to the one I'm happily living. So sorry but no, I could not finish it... The author sounds very very American and full of extraverted ideal. Didn't find much of originality in this work.

Brave, funny, moving

I loved this book and the narration by the author is excellent. It’s about living life in a potentially lonely world, it’s about vulnerability and being brave.
It’s funny, warm and just brilliant. Everyone should read it!
