Baker understands this and has taken the perfect approach with her book. She takes 125 of the most common tasks Acrobat can perform and devotes several pages to each. She's identified the tasks with the greatest common interest and explains how to do each one clearly and concisely.
For heavy-duty Acrobat users, it saves you time from searching out how to do that one task you know Acrobat does, but can't easily find explanations for. For new - or very occasional - users of Acrobat, it highlights some of the capabilities you might not have been aware of, but will likely find useful.
Acrobat is incredibly powerful software that provides a 'better way' for doing many things. Great to have a book that identifies those many things and clearly explains how to do them.
But I think the book is aimed at advanced users who already know the program, and appreciate its features, and simply need a reference to recall some of the more complicated lesser used options.
I found the explanations cumbersome and difficult to follow. There are few if any, examples of how a feature would be used in the day to day routine of business.
