How do you get that sticky glue residue off of the the back/front of things (e.g. a book) that a sticker used to be on?

This is actually something I've been curious about for a while, but was only reminded of recently when I bought a used book with a sticker on the back. I removed the sticker in strips and pieces, but there's still that sort of mixture of paper and glue left on it in the general outline of the original sticker. So how about it - is there an easy way to get this stuff off without damaging the book (or dvd, or whatever may be my next target for sticker removal)?
