    Host: What other information do I need on the book cover?

    Jim Frey: One thing that I would suggest that you need is on the back flap of the book cover, the back of the book, where the ISBN number would most likely be or the retail price would be, would be a synopsis of the book and that captures in two or three paragraphs with the content inside the book would be. At minimum, if you don't have that, you should have some information about you as the author and maybe, the journey that you have taken on compiling the information to write this book.
