Is it possible to get the content of the body of any word document in apex class thorugh visual force page.Here we are trying one word document i was saved in our salesforce document list.Now i was trying to get that word document as it is by using apex class and visual force page.
Apex Class:

                Blob b = documentList[0].body;
                Content = documentList.tostring();
                System.debug(Content);
            }else{
                return;
            }
        }
    }
}

Visual Force Page:
<apex:page controller="DocumentTest" contentType="application/vnd.ms-word#TestForm.doc" action="{!fetchData}">
    <apex:Form >
