Start reading here (and click Next Topic until you get to the page titled "Long Lenses"):

Basically it gives you the ability to stand in one spot, and get closer or further away from the subject you're shooting without moving. For instance, as you sit at your computer you see a certain amount of the surrounding move your eyes closer to the monitor (tele) and although the monitor is closer you see less of the surrounding move away from your normal sitting position and you see a wider area.
