In collaboration with Peachpit Press, we're hosting a promotional contest to give away during the next two weeks eight copies of the "Adobe Reader 7 Revealed: Working Effectively with Acrobat PDF Files" book by Ted Padova.

ALSO: Members of the global Planet PDF community can obtain a special purchase discount on this and other relevant books from Peachpit and Adobe Press.

Peachpit says:

"In the first-ever book on this wildly popular PDF viewer, best-selling author Ted Padova shows you that there's a lot more to Adobe Reader than you may have known. Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional enables document creators to turn on the familiar Acrobat commenting tools for Adobe Reader 7.0 users who are included in a document review. This means that if you have Adobe Reader 7.0, you can view, search, and print Adobe PDF files that look just like the original documents, with all formatting intact. You can also copy text and images, download and read Adobe Digital Editions (eBooks), fill in intelligent Adobe PDF forms, and view Adobe Photoshop Album slide shows and eCards.

This book offers clear explanations of Adobe Reader features and fully illustrated step-by-step tasks to show you how to maximize your efficiency with this newly boosted productivity tool."
