Are there any alternatives to an extension like MapLogic?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Do you mean 'map book' or 'map series'? A map package is a file that contains an mxd as well as the data that the mxd's layers reference, making it easy to share complete map documents with others. – Tanner Jul 30 '11 at 0:30
    
Also, what version of ArcMap are you using? As far as I know, it is impossible to have multiple layouts within one mxd. – Tanner Jul 30 '11 at 0:31

What is the main requirement that you are trying to meet? In any event I think you may be better to describe them in a question at Software Recommendations but be warned that you need to read their help first because they are necessarily quite strict about how questions there are presented. – PolyGeo Dec 10 '15 at 22:52

For the price, Maplogic is a pretty good tool. However if you are on ArcGIS 10, mapbooks can be integrated in an MXD as cited in this blog post. However they're termed 'Data Driven Pages'.

I agree - use ArcPy to append PDF files that you have exported from MXDs with different page sizes – PolyGeo Mar 27 '12 at 22:54

the other way is you can use xtools pro 8 package for it,..

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Its possible to create map books with different scales for different pages, but I'm not sure that's what you mean.
