It's a short (and funny!) read, which will leave us much smarter than we were before we turned the first page.
Being one who learns by doing or example, the author's style of breaking down each area into easy to implement steps, which were learned when done, as this slim column progressed, so did my need discover the kernel within each area and hone it until I knew a reader would feel what I’d written so compelling they had to buy my book!
From the first illustration of using keywords and alternating the length of sentences, to the end, I learned so much that I am now proud of the back matter I've written for my books. If you're looking a 'how to' easy to understand and implement primmer, THIS IS THE BOOK! For not only do we see what works, but the author also shows us what doesn't. I especially appreciated him showing the various ways back matter could be written, which I'll employ depending the genre I need the synopsis to be written for.

I bought this book because I want to sell more of my books. I'm not 100% certain that I'll achieve that goal but the ideas the author has outlined are definitely worth trying. What I am certain of is that I won't sell fewer copies by changing my descriptions, so there is no downside but the possibility of strong upside. I'll take those odds every day of the week.
If you get one new idea from a how-to text you're doing well. I enjoyed How to Write a Sizzling Synopsis and got many ideas that I'll experiment with.
Do you have a lame, wordy, long, totally overwritten and overwrought book description? Join the club. ...but that's about to change. The book lays it all out in clear, solid, and easy steps, taking you from what's probably "way too much" book description to the perfect length that hits all the triggers, and makes potential readers click "purchase."
All of the examples in the book relate to genre books (fantasy, thriller, sci-fi, romance), so writers of literary fiction, memoir, non-fiction, and books of subtlety will find fewer ideas here. They may also find the recommended prose style a bit breathless and over the top.
