I won't bother to comment about the pdf conversion - read the sticky about the myriad ways a pdf conversion can go awry. However, that book you link is also available as multiple html files - there isn't a single master file/archive, so you'll need to individually download all the chapters, but by going through that extra effort you'll get a very usable html source for ebook conversion.

I have already done this for this particular file and it creates an epub which is about 7 meg in size. It is a project which I started working on and have yet to finish. I have uploaded it so you can play with it. It is broken up into pages, many of them. You can use it as is or remove the page breaks to make it flow more easily.
Also it has footnotes which will need links to make it easier to use in readers like the Sony that don't jump around as easier as I understand some others do.
