A hook uses your whole body for propulsion and transfer of weight from left to right, or front to back is the main reason why it isn't as good a punch to finish on as the jab par se... Obviously circumstances dictate how you should finish a combination but as most engagements won't lead to a brutal knockout opportunity it would be more reasonable to suggest that a jab will leave the boxer in a better position to continue the attack - or defend.
I don't agree..you land the hook..the guy reacts, your body turns out the other way...you are safe to either leave the pocket or stay in and start a new combination.
