Books can provide a good overview of a topic, as well as in-depth information. A book often includes a bibliography or list of additional resources (other books, articles, etc.). You can use the bibliography to find more resources related to your topic.
Book Search works just like a Google web search. When Google finds a book with content that contains a match for your search terms, they'll link to it in your search results.
If the book is out of copyright, or the publisher has given Google permission, you'll be able to see a preview of the book, and in some cases the entire text. If it's in the public domain, you're free to download a PDF copy
