Receive Antenna Gain?

A book about 802.11 seemed to refer to an antenna’s receive gain as being variable and separate from transmit gain. Gain on a transmitting antenna adds transmission power. A receiving antenna does not "transmit" (correct?), so what is the gain doing to help?

If you really want details, I recommend the book, "RF Engineering for Wireless Networks," by Daniel M. Dobkin.
