How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found is a book by Doug Richmond, originally released in 1995, which is a how-to guide on starting a new identity. It includes chapters on planning a disappearance, arranging for new identification, finding work, establishing credit, pseudocide (creating the impression you're dead), and more. The book recommends a method of disappearing by assuming the identity of a dead person with similar vital statistics and age, and also includes a section on avoiding paper trails which, due to the age of the book, may no longer be relevant or useful.

A play inspired by the book was released in 2005[1] by Fin Kennedy, about a man wanting to disappear, which won the John Whiting Award.[2]
