I second what Tim has said. We use the DSMapbook Plotting routine both in-house and with our clients. We have tweaked it a little so the Local Indicator maintains a set scale around map tiles that are not surround on all sides by other tiles.

Subject: shrug-l: map book solutions

We have had excellent results from the "DS Mapbook" utility that is
available from ESRI. We've used it to generate 225-page map books in
sizes from letter to 2'x3', with and without ortho imagery. DS Mapbook
was part of ArcGIS 9.1, hopefully also in 9.2.
The only weakness I have found is that because it is a "developer's
sample" utility, documentation is not as detailed as hoped. But the ESRI
on-line user forum has many useful discussions about Mapbook.
My two cents ...
