Do we have this? Those quotes on the back of books (or on movie posters, "best comedy of the year by far" for a film released in january) saying how great the subject is (and sometimes just copy-pasted by the publisher) from other authors or reviewers. Usually a complete lie, or so utterly generic that it gives no clue as to what the book is about (although Terry Pratchett once used a critic's denigration of a book as the blurb for it), and occasionally giving away the entire plot. An integral part of the publishing industry these days.
Hello, Unknown Troper. You'll need to get known to lend a hand here.
