The following is stated in the book:
" Materials with a greater permittivity allow for more field flux (offer less opposition), and thus a greater collected charge, for any given amount of field force (applied voltage)."
"Glass, for instance, with a relative permittivity of 7, has seven times the permittivity of a pure vacuum, and consequently will allow for the establishment of an electric field flux seven times stronger than that of a vacuum, all other factors being equal.
"

However, I learned from other sources, that "permittivity" is a misnomer. the higher the permittivty the higher the resistance to the build up of electric field flux and not the opposite.
