typically rack pulls are incorperated into a power lifting program to enhance your lockout strength, similar to board presses in bench.
Conversely, they're used by people with big egos to inflate their numbers.
I would say that for the bulk of us, the ground is good enough.

Go from the ground - It's by far the best way!
Remember - butt down, chest high, keep your abs tights and pull the bar up as close to your shins as you can.

Some who are a lot more flexible would even suggest standing on elevated platform (like those steps for aerobics) so the bar is parrallel with the bottom of your feet.

Depends on your goals and you current regimen whether or not to implement rack pulls.
