Amazon 'Look Inside' and Google Preview
The Amazon 'Look Inside' and Google Preview service gives readers a sneak peek of your book and is included in all publishing packages that contain e-book formatting. When searching Amazon and Google, customers are able to access a limited preview of your book—about 20% of your book will be randomly selected by Amazon and Google. Readers have the opportunity to sample the preview pages through a navigation bar as well as the table of contents and search for specific terms located within your text.
