Books can provide background or historical information on a topic, research, and a wide view of a topic. You may not find the most current information as the writing and publishing process does take some time. But the content will be thorough. You may also not want all the information contained in a book. It may be helpful to just read a chapter or section as that is all the information that will apply to your topic.
