how to convert a scanned page from a book (looks like photo of page) to clean text?

ok, fairly simple question - i have a book in pdf format, that is scanned with the page and all (looks a bit like a photo of the book almost).
this of course makes for awkward reading, and obviously awkward printing.

how could i take this roughly scanned book, and convert the text into nice clean, legible text?

for instance, how to change this page:

into something more like this?

is it an easy process? several steps involved, great patience, etc? someone fill me in

some of my old books are quite treasured and i'd love to see them get a bit of a second wind by being digitized, even if it does take some work on my part

thank you
