Simple - there is tons of code for the reader to scan in the book. And guess what, that code is going to be a HELLUVA lot better than the code from the recorder. So if you learn by reading code, then read the code in a good book (vs. reading the code produced by the macro recorder). You will learn more and faster.
I started learning VBA because I wanted to make certain activities I had to perform in a workbook easier. I could have spent time reading the book, and figuring out all the pieces individually - or I could just record the action that I wanted replicated in VBA recorder and use that.
