Format: Paperback
The TFS Guide is the collection of best practise from experts in the use of Team Foundation Server from both inside and outside of Microsoft. It is the ideal follow-on book from "Professional Team Foundation Server" for those people really wanting to know more about how to use TFS without trawling through the thousands of blog posts and forums discussions on the topic.

The Patterns and Practises team at Microsoft have done a great job putting this book together in an open peer reviewed process and so you know that what you are reading is not just the opinions of one or two well placed individuals - but the combination of the knowledge about TFS in the wider community at this time.

This is a printed copy of the TFS Guide which is available as an open source project on CodePlex. You can refer to the guidance for free electronically, on the TFSGuide CodePlex site. However, it is such a comprehensive and detailed guide that you may well want a printed reference. There are occasionas when you cannot beat a properly bound book with a table of contents, index etc.

This book does an OK job at explaining what it needs to do. Unfortunately, it does not go terribly in depth into many topics. I bought it mainly to learn about editing the work items, processes, and so on, and it did not give me the information that I needed. It also does not seem to be very clear about what stuff applies to TFS 2008 and what applies to TFS 2005. Like far too many Microsoft Press books, it just feels like it is aimed at an architect or business analyst, but not at someone looking to accomplish real work.

This book is not a bible of Team Foundation Server, but it is awfully close. There are no chapters devoted to how to install and configure TFS--that would be an entire book in and of itself. Just the same, it is loaded with practical advice: not only the choices you can make as to how to implement TFS, but also some suggestions on why you might prefer one choice over the other. "Patterns and Practices" is an apt name for this guide, as it very clearly provides you exactly that. The only real downside to this book is that it appears to be a collection of tachnical papers on Team Foundation Server, and as such, it has a tendency to repeat itself: this is especially noticeable in the middle section of the book, when you start getting into Build Configurations: whole pages are copied and re-pasted. It's still an excellent guide, just bear in mind that it's somewhat stuctured like a Chilton's Manual--some repetition required.

I liked the Team Development with VS TFS a lot as it answers my current need completely. The book gives insight on how to use TFS to improve your sw development process and how to gain biggest benefit from TFS. It also gives a detailed technical instructions on how to configure and setup the environment in multiple cases.

I have picked up this book because I need to manage projects and my team is using Microsoft development tools and TFS.
The book is too superficial to be able to do anything specific. It does not explain how Work Items work and how each field in the work item is related to the development workflow.

It talks about reports to monitor progress, quality, etc. but it does not explain what metrics or values the report is based on.

The content is pretty disorganized and a lot of text is repeated multiple times throughout the book (ie. the report descriptions 3 or 4 times)

It seems as if a marketing person put the book together without any review.
