Great desk reference. I discovered some amazing stuff you can do now in the way of editing PDFs; (I work in prepress). If you think you might be ablt to create a fancy "add-on", or edit a supplied PDF to make it work properly, then this book will tell you whether you can or not! Highly recommended. Skim through the Chapter headings, deep search for something in particular...but it's not bedtime reading.
