Default Publishing vs Printing a Book?

Can anyone please explain for me the difference between having a book published and having it printed? Some people go along to a printer and get their work printed in book form. But I assume this is not the same as having a book published. What exactly does 'publication' mean and what does it involve? What are its advantages over having it merely printed? What is the significance of the ISB number.
