You can't. Unless they've kept a record and are willing to tell you.

After years of praising EPUB format with its oh-so-powerful metadata such small task is still impossible. That figures.

It's interesting that in Overdrive.com, author searchers include those who write the forewords for books. Wish there was an option for searching_for/filtering_by endorsers.

It's got nothing to do with the format - somebody has to create the metadata to load into the database in the first place. So there's a nice little project for you.

Besides - the Stephen King with a little snippet quoted on the cover may not be the author Stephen King.

Probably Google and/or Amazon do have all (or lots more than reviewed book and a name) the information about people leaving reviews. Google sells that. Amazon may only use it for their own marketing.

The question is about endorsements printed in the book, not reviews on websites.

One article that I found interesting: Stephen King on the ''art'' of the blurb.

And if anyone can remember the name of a prolific blurb writer for movies who once commented that he never let not having seen the movie affect his ability to write a blurb for it.
