There's a well-known rule about not judging books by their covers, but that's nuts. The entire point of a book cover is to show you what's inside. The fact that the book covers don't actually prepare a person for what's inside doesn't mean we should stop using them as a source of information. It just means the cover designers should be doing a better job.

We asked our readers to remedy that problem, and paid cash to our favorite.
