There certainly are. But I think that Amazon samples are made by Amazon, rather than the original publisher.
I remember downloading a sample from Amazon and posting here that it was the worst formatted book I had ever seen. It was vile. But I wanted the full book so badly that I bought it anyway, and it was much better.
But it came in azw which I can only read on my computer and don't yet know how to remove the DRM. But that's another story.
