Display PDF document in SharePoint

Rather than merely link to a pdf file, why not display the pdf right within a SharePoint page?

Add a Page Viewer web part and configure it like this.

sp_page_viewer_tool_part_pdf

To make the pdf display without the adobe tool bar and scroll bars, make sure to add parameters to the PDF’s URL.

The full URL to the pdf file should look something like this:
/Shared Documents/doc.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0&scrollbar=0

For more parameters see this documentation:
