I find those that contain colour coded source code and detailed diagram do not really convert very well. The best results I have got is using PdfLrfWin which converts the Pdf into grey scales screen half screens. You can then extract these pictures from the lrf with Lrf2Lts. Then recombine the pictures into an epub. But I tend to loose the plot when it comes to pages and pages of source code.

Those that are wordy with a few simple "system" type diagrams convert very well. I also have Word versions of several books and these are easy to convert to ePub with a little reformatting of headings to get the TOC working. Using the atlantis word processor
