Without meaningful text, it is impossible to judge if the book would be useful. Why bother?

It should be noted that my rating is for the Nook sample, not the full text. The Nook sample book only has 5 pages, and they consist of the book's Table of Contents, and nothing else! No actual text content appears in the sample book. I wish this sample had at least a dozen pages or so of actual content so that I can make a purchase decision between this book, "Windows 8 for Dummies 10-in-1," and the "Windows 8 Bible." It's possible that this is a B&N technical issue and not the fault of the author or publisher.
