If folks pick up your publication they would like to understand is exactly what it's about. That is the reason why novels have a synopsis or description on the back cover. But when the text featured on the back cover does not hook the reader's attention immediately, odds are they won't purchase the book.

Some writers put just their biographies in their backpacks.
