Why Use Books?

For your topic, it might be best to use a book to find in-depth information. Books provide comprehensive information. It may help to think of each chapter as a single article which focuses on one aspect of a topic. Generally, a book compiles chapters which focus on a specific aspect of your topic into one overarching book.

Additionally reference books, which provide a brief summary of a topic, are a good place to start when you are learning about an unfamiliar topic.
