In my view AND In my opinion. Do they mean exactly the same?
In my view they're interchangeable.
That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it!
In my view the plan will fail. [=I think that the plan will fail]
In my opinion, it's the best car on the market.
Can I say "In my book" in place of In my view and In my opinion?
in my book
informal : in my opinion
▪ She deserves credit, in my book, for much of the company's recent success.
▪ He isn't even a good boss, at least not in my book.
Here's in my book. It is equated with "in my view" or "in my opinion", but I don't see "in my book" as something that can always be used as a synonym for either.
Take a look at "principle" to better understand how I perceive "in my book".

Bringing something abstract such as one's opinion or view into the concrete or physical world could make the idea sound stronger. And I think this is what's happening with this expression in my book.
Now, that's my point. The expression "in my book" really doesn't fit very well there. It would be better to simply end the sentence with "in my opinion" or "in my view".
