Why do you need an index?

A well-written book index gives the reader quick access to the ideas within a book, thereby increasing the perceived value of the book. The index is a map to the book so that readers can explore and locate ideas and information quickly and efficiently. This increases the overall interest in, and usefulness of the book for the reader, which translates to increased book sales.
