Ordering and Shipping

No book preview?

I’m curious as to why so many of the folks who are publishing books of photos have opted not to include a book preview.  I have been checking the bookstore for things I might like to purchase, but so many of the ones I’m interested in don’t give me the option of looking through the first pages.  I’m not flush enough to blithely hand over my money based solely on an attractive cover photo … and some of these preview-less books are selling for $100 or more!

When I shop in a bookstore, I look through a book before I buy.  Please help me understand the rationale for removing that option here.
