About Books

Book often provide a comprehensive overview or historical background of a subject. They may present theories or expert opinions on a topic. Remember, it is often not necessary to read a book cover-to-cover to make use of ideas presented in it; academic researchers often use skimming and scanning techniques to identify parts of a book relevant to their research.
