I have a really hard time buying any book whose author/publisher does not respect the customer enough to allow seeing a sampling of the book before buying. It makes me suspicious of the quality. Is the writing that bad? Does the author think that inspecting a few pages will lead to fewer sales?
I really do want to know *this* author's rationale for not allowing peeks inside his book before I spend my precious money. Perhaps this point is covered in the book, but I guess I'll never know since I cannot even see the table of contents.
