Nope not possible, you have to look it up on the website to see the description. The Android apps dont have the descriptions with the book.

This seems like a huge issue to me. I have HUNDREDS of books on my kindle and a book description, even if it was a redirect to a web page, would be so nice. I have no idea what the book is about if i haven't read it yet. Hope they fix this.

It is quicker if you open the book and go into x-ray. Toward the bottom there is info about the author click at the bottom and it will take you to the authors books.
Not the easiest or quickest thing but it works for mi

Not having access to the book's description (synopsis) after it's purchased is really frustrating. I too have thousands of books and on the Kindle Fire HDX even going to the store doesn't show the book description for purchased books. I'll have to try the X-ray menu. Sometimes the regular book menu will have a description or a link to the book's webpage.
