You will gather all information and data related to the topic and idea you want to write the book about. You can gather the data from online, libraries, experts, books, news, etc.
Just remember one thing in data collection that if you are quoting some third information then try to give credit to the person, media, or source, etc. Its an illegal act of copying and quoting other people’s information without their agreed consent and reference.
