Importance of Table of Contents

The table of contents is like a road map, which can take you to the correct place while viewing the book.

Well-formatted TOC should include embedded links to the chapters of the book, which makes it even easier to reach the desired section and provides a simple and logical nexus of guideposts. Though the table of contents includes only major sections of the file, it is particularly useful when an ebook is divided into hundreds of pages while viewing it on reader app or devices.

In a word, the table of contents mainly serves two purposes: one important purpose is that it gives users an overview of the file's contents and organization. The other is it allows readers to go directly to a specific chapter or section of an ebook.
