VSTO for Mere Mortals This book is written by former VSTO team members Kathleen McGrath and Paul Stubbs. It targets VB.NET as the language and VSTO 2005, including Add-ins created using SE. Good introductory book for people transitioning from VBA. The basics still apply for later versions of VSTO.
Visual Studio Tools for Office 2007: VSTO for Excel, Word and Outlook (March 2009) This is a book written by former VSTO team members Eric Carter and Eric Lippert. It is a re-write of the 2005 edition, targeting VSTO 2008 and Office 2007. It covers advanced topics in Office development and VSTO technology, as well as the basics of using VSTO. Code samples and discussion revolve around using C#, but the basic discussion also apply to VB.NET. Basics still apply to later versions of VSTO and Office. Publisher: Addison-Wesley; ISBN 978-0-321-53321-0.
From VBA to VSTO
Excel-centric on how to migrate from VBA to VSTO using VB.NET. Published in 2006, so somewhat out-dated but may be useful for the VBA-to-VB.NET migratrion.
