Book: ‘Acrobat 6: Professional Results’ by Carl Young

Last year when we spoke with Carl Young of DigiPub Solutions for an article on the history of the PDF Conference that he launched four years ago, he said: ‘Once people start learning how to use Acrobat, they just can’t seem to get enough of it. They keep finding more and more things to do with it.’ The now-popular conference, next slated for September 13-14 in Baltimore, has become one of the best opportunities for continuing education on Acrobat and PDF from a variety of global experts.
