Annoyed by book blurbs

I know, I should not care. I should also know that they probably have their place. But I am really, really annoyed when I read “cheap” book blurbs with sentences such as:

n million copies sold worldwide!” “I've enjoyed it”, “Miss it at your own risk”, “Brilliant” (Someone famous for a reason or another) “This book will change your life.”

No, I am not buying it because many others bought it. I'm not buying it because some famous person said a couple words about it. I'm not buying it for some feel-good promise. Damn it.
