I'm not a scannor, so take this advice with a grain of salt, but you might try increasing the dots-per-inch from 300 to 400 for the pages giving you problems. This increases your scan time but can give you better results.

I would guess that this book just has some space that aren't wide enough for the OCR to determine whether or not they are supposed to be a space. What I would do is have a sighted person check a couple of the places where you have had an issue. If they tell you there are spaces between the words, I would assume that this book has weird spacing that the OCR has trouble with and you will have to fix it.
