If we take stuff from the website, it should be already translated.

Four things on the back cover:

1. Blurb of what this book will help you achieve

Getting Started with Ubuntu 10.04 is a comprehensive
beginner's guide designed for the Ubuntu operating
system. It is written under an open source license and
is free for you to download, read, modify, and share.

The manual will help you become familiar with everyday
tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music, and
scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy-to-follow
instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience.

2. Features list

[Can we rewrite these as complete sentences?]

Easy to understand - our manual has step-by-step instructions and is jargon-free
A picture is worth a thousand words - lots of screenshots to show you how to do tasks
All in one place - conveniently located in one file, so you don’t have to look all over the web for help
Progressive learning curve - start with the basics, and learn as you work through each chapter
Dozens of languages - translated into more than 50 languages, including localized screenshots
No cost - our documents are all written by Ubuntu community members and there is no charge to use them
Troubleshooting section - to help you solve common Ubuntu problems quickly

3. Some nice graphics about community or Ubuntu

Continued in the same style as the graphic on the front cover.

New Ubuntu logo in the corner on the back.

4. Review Quotes!

"The Ubuntu Manual Team have done a wonderful job in working together
and uniting a community to build a comprehensive first edition of their
guide. While their work is impressive today, I look forward to seeing
their continued achievements in future editions."
    -- Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager
