This is a "low-level" book--in the sense of being useful to the software developer who needs to extract data from existing PDF files, or automate solutions that create PDF files. This is a splendid companion for a developer who is working with the iText (or iTextSharp) PDF libraries (or GhostScript).
Sure - it does that; but one have to use a third party program to do it.
The line "Use the pdftk program to process PDF files from the command line" in the description mislead me to think that this tool was optional. It should have read something like "The pdftk program is used throughout the book to generate PDF files".
As it is I have had to check other sources to be able to generate my own PDF files from my own programs without pdftk.
Therefore this book only recieve three out of five stars from me; it misses the essential part that is the actual creation process of PDF files.
