I hate to contradict Jeff, but I see no reason why you can't do what you want.
 I did a similar sort of thing for my dissertation.  What I would suggest, is
to make an @Summary similar to @Section and an @SummaryPlace galley.  Modify
the definition of @Chapter to include @SummaryPlace after the section list.  In
your definition of @Summary, you need to include an @ContentsEntry to get it to
show up in the contents.

You should be able to figure most of this out from looking at the book layout
file.  Also, check the expert manual.

Good luck,
