No, that's not the best way of looking up information in the manual.
The best way is through the `i' command, which searches the index
entries.  It prompts you for a string, where you should type a word or
a partial phrase that to you sound relevant to the issue you are
looking for.  Since you specifically asked about hooks, typing "hooks"
there would be a good start.
