Acrobat: Multiple Pages Per Sheet / Double Sided Printing?

I have a six-hundred-something-pages PDF book I would like to print on my Epson EPL-5900. The pages are B5 size, so I wanted to print 2 pages per A4 sheet, doublesided.
The problem is that I see no option for printing multiple pages per sheet efficiently.
What I need is the following print order: 1,2,5,6,9,10,... so I can turn the paper other way around and then print 3,4,7,8,11,12,...

Is there a way to do this?

I use Acrobat Reader 7.0.

What you want is Imposition software, which is quite pricey for a one off.  Any decent print bureau should be able to convert it for you, for a fee.
Hi holandar :-),

I haven't tried this on reader but the Full Version of Acrobat, try "Print", "Properties", "Features", "Multiple Pages per Sheet"

Oops I forgot to comment on this.

Ok, the procedure is as follows:

On the navigation tab chose Pages, adjust the size of the tab to have four pages in a row and then, using mouse, select all the pages in the last two columns.
Go to File|Print... , in Page Handling set Page Scaling option to multiple pages per sheet, select 2 pages per sheet, and check Reverse Pages checkbox.
When finished, put the sheets back in the loading tray (you have to sort it out how to turn them to print correctly), select al the pages in the first two columns, go to File|Print, uncheck Reverse Pages and that's it.
