Often you will need to get some background information on your topic in order to get a general sense of the history of the subject, and an overview of what research has been done up to this point.
Sometimes books can be the best place to get detailed, but not overly technical, background on a topic. Due to the long time that it takes to write, edit and publish books, they are not the best source for learning about the most recent research but books, or book chapters, can provide an excellent springboard from which to be able to comprehend the significance of new findings.
