books/: Address more instances of sentences beginning with 'Because...'
As was the case with the previous commit, the intention is to avoid sentence fragments as well as sentences that can be mistaken for them, since the handbook isn't written in a style that makes use of subordinate conjunctions. While touching the relevant files, I also fixed a few issues pointed out by PauAmma, and reflowed a sentence as a result. PR: 252519 Submitted by: ceri@ Reviewed by: PauAmma
