Quote from the above:- ""A lot of authors are uncomfortable with it," Krupin said. "If people are seeing the actual content, they may not make the same buying decision. All of us are up in the air about how much you can give to the public before it hurts you.""

My partner reads a great deal, fortunately we live just 100yds from the public library, and reads a great variety of fiction but often bemoans the quality of the writing once past the first few pages. Are the publishers/authors worried that we will see how poor some books are BEFORE buying them?

Actually I think this new Google project is a great idea.
