To be fair, Stella luv, as he said: he *didn't* review it, he was just tempted to.
As a general point I agree though. I've come across a couple of cases recently of reviews based only on the 'Look Inside' sample - both very negative (and rather pleased with themselves). But we can all read the sample for ourselves, if we wish. A review needs to be offering something that is not already obvious (preferably, knowing what the rest of the book is like).
Unfortunately, bad SP books and constant spamming seem to goad some people into doing these things, and even thinking they're performing a public serivice.
