I would have to agree as well...DSMapbook works very well for the things
that we have done - citywide mapbook with or without aerials behind it.
Takes a couple of tweaks to make it the way you want, but otherwise I
think it's a great tool.

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.

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 ...
