The book PDFs usually run in the 3-10MB range. Individual chapters in FM format can run up to 30MB or more. And as Rick said, we're talking about a single FM file per chapter in a book, then generating a single PDF for the book, not separate PDFs for each chapter.
(I wish we could reference images, but we've got an "interesting" hybrid setup that also involves a content management system, and the unstructured FM users have to embed the graphics.)
