Can Calibre Include Blurb?

When I convert a book using Calibre, I've noticed that there's often a brief synopsis of the novel in the metadata box. Is it possible to include this at the beginning of the book? If so, how do I do this?

Thanks lots.

Addendum : you can add a 'jacket' to an existing book's ePub format using the Polish Book tool, which you can access by adding it to a toolbar or menu using Preferences->Toolbars; or simply press the 'P' key

OMG. I had NO idea this was possible. My whole world changes!

Thanks to BR (for being awesome) and BookCat (for asking the question).
