Harry, I can point you to an example (several, in fact), but you'll have to
go get it yourself. That seems fair to me.

For fiction:
Go to your local library.
Find a copy of the _Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature_.
In the back, you'll find synopses of recently published books.

For technical stuff:
Get a copy of the STC quarterly journal _Technical Communication_.
Look at the book reviews. Along with the more extensive reviews, you'll find
several shorter synopses. (Yes, I know there's a difference between a review
and a synopsis. You'll find both in most issues.)

You could also look at,,,etc. for
some sales-oriented synopses.
