This page breaks down the sections of a book (anthology or monograph) and examines each part's value. Both the more commonly used and less used portions of a book are discussed.
Most commonly-accessed sections of books
Too-often overlooked sections of books
NOTE: "Sources used" means they have a note or reference someplace in the body of the book; they somehow contribute to the content. "Sources consulted" means that the author looked at them during the research process, but for some reason did not include them in the book.
