Many long documents, such as complex reports and business proposals, require multiple TOCs — for example, a summary TOC and several detailed TOCs throughout the document.
Instructional and reference books, such as a textbook or a cookbook, might include a basic table of contents for the whole book showing just chapter titles and then a more detailed table of contents for each separate chapter.
