ArcGIS users can streamline workflow, increase functionality, and improve efficiency by learning to program ArcObjects, the development platform for ArcGIS. Programming ArcObjects with VBA: A Task-Oriented Approach directly relates what you already know about ArcGIS to programming, making it easier to sort out objects, properties, and methods in code.
This volume, which adopts Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) for programming, first analyzes Geodatabase, the organization of ArcObjects, and ArcOjects help sources. It then reviews programming basics including the writing of code, calling subs and functions, Visual Basic Editor, code debugging, and user interface customization.
The book discusses the programming of ArcObjects for solving common GIS tasks such as dataset and layer management, data conversion, vector and raster data analysis, and much more. Each task-programming chapter has three parts: a quick review of ArcGIS commands; a discussion of related objects; and sample programs for problem solving.
An accompanying CD contains 95 sample programs, each of which describes its usage, contains a list of key properties and methods, and a listing and explanation of code. Many samples are divided into segments to better connect code lines with explanations. These programs, stored as text files, can be easily imported into Visual Basic Editor in either ArcMap or ArcCatalog to view and run. The CD also contains datasets that can be used to run the sample programs.

It is a quick starter, it is a phenomenal reference book, and it gives you real examples with plain English explanations! Everything that you need in order to start tweaking your ArcGIS environment!
The Arcobjects model is so complex and puzzling that it is no wonder there are few authors that can spare time from actually trying to understanding it, to write a book as good as this one about it, hands down the best in this topic to date. Some criticize it is too basic, but its closest rival, Getting to Know ArcObjects (With CD-ROM) is far simpler. I actually was dissapointed with that one. With this I'm actually learning something. If someone thinks "Programming Arcobjects with VBA" is simple, then they should write a book themselves. We can only hope the incoming GIS Programming: Concepts and Applications is even more informative than this one.
First-off, there is a new edition of this book coming out. So, i won't judge this one on 'outdatedness.'
This is a very good follow-up to the 'getting to know arcpbjects' book from esri (which are the only 2 guide books to arcobjects out there).
It is fairly easy to read, and i like the code given in the text and on the cd, especially on the cd, because you can copy and paste it right into your ArcGIS.
Overall a good instructional book on various arcobjects technics.
