Semi-automatically, really, but I think the easiest way is to:

1) take note of which pages you need,

2) create a new latex document; include in your preamble

\usepackage{pdfpages}

3) as the body of your document, type

\begin{document}
\includepdf[pages={25,26,77,78,99,100}]{yourbook.pdf}
\end{document}

(substitute as needed, and do the same for the rest of the pages;
note that you can use page ranges, as, say, 1-24,27-76 and so on)
