4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but could go into more detail 1 Feb 2010
By Comdet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Overall, this is a good reference text for Acrobat. It tries to cover everything, which is admirable, but given the complexity of some Acrobat features, it covers some topics rather superficially.

A prime example is forms. Form development, fielding, data collection, etc. is a highly complex topic, and can't be covered in a few dozen pages. So, despite the title, you won't learn how to do "everything" but rather, will learn how to do most things, and become at least familiar with the rest.

I also didn't think it was worth the amount of time spent on very basic concepts, such as the differences between the various versions of Acrobat, and how to create simple PDFs from various applications. I would imagine that someone who buys this book already has a good grounding in the basics, and wants to bring their abilities to the next level. I would have preferred more detail on some of the more complex issues such as editing, graphics formats, combining different file formats, and so on instead of basic material.

Bottom line -- this is still well worth getting if you want a single volume that covers a wide range of topics. I found it far better than the materials/books Adobe puts out, and cost a whole lot less as well. It's clearly written and well-organized. But, if you want to go deep inside the nuances of issues such as form design, you'll need to purchase an additional book that specializes in just that topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Acrobat 9 4 Mar 2009

This book has helped me a great deal. I needed to be able to use Adobe Writer at work and the software was loaded but no instructions were given. This book has been a lifesaver.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than nothing 21 Dec 2010
By TangoLarry1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's like any other Adobe book - a ton of info - touching on a lot of different topics - but not quite what I needed. But like my title line says it's better than nothing.
