I put them in because they are there. It is the whole book to me even if no one chooses to read it, unless I can't. Cindy Lou Cindy Lou Ray.

I don't put reviews from the back cover; if reviews of the book have been scanned, as validator I leave them, usually. Of course the reviews of the book are going to be raves. Guido, do you really find them useful, or are you referring to reviews of other books by the same author, which I can see would be useful if they have info about the book don't just say how wonderful the books are. I've come to realize that authors of the same genre will give positive reviews to a fellow author's book in that genre, probably because they want the same treatment. I have upon occasion, after reading/validating a book, wondered how on earth it could have been given such a good review. That's what made me realize.
