Any good app for removing white margins of pdf?

Actually, I think the autocrop in Kindle is good enough, so is there an app can do just the same as Kindle? Unfortunately, Acrobat does not do the job. It has a autocrop tool but seldom useful. I have tried pdfcrop.pl, it is great in autocropping since it uses ghostscript to determine the white margins for each page, but this tool doesn't keep TOC. I also tried soPdf, it doesnot keep TOC either. I think a good tool should exist since it seems that the job is not that difficult.

Any advise?

I use Acrobat 9 Extended, you can go to crop -> box crop, works good for cropping out borders also, like how they put ISBN info and page header/footers. That way you get just the document body.

Then you can use acrobat to renumber the pages (i-xi for the preface-> contents, and then 1-500 for the body), so that the contents of the book aligns with the PDF page numbers in the PDF viewer.
