COMM 260 Curtin: Find books

Why use books for Research?

As the Sauna Pants review points out, the more shrewd consumer wants to see evidence of the product's effectiveness. The next commercial might address this by pointing to 

  • testimonials from people who actually lost weight (if this ever occurred)
  • or research studies that show excess water loss as a health benefit (if that exists).                         

‚ÄčBooks offer

  • Detailed analysis of a topic                    
  • Well-established background information                    
  • Overview of big issue                    
  • Use their bibliographies to find other sources
