Very true, and it doesn't endear the book to anyone who has downloaded such a sample for evaluation. If anything, a sample with no actual content is counter-productive. It angers the potential customer by making them feel they've just wasted their precious time on a wild goose chase. It seems better to offer no sample than one devoid of content.
