We are still implementing, but this is a great starter resource, especially if you are already familiar with any form of source management.
My organization used this book extensively for our Project Managers and Business Analysts. We had testers but the materials on Testing are probably enough to make an entire book unto itself, so you won't get a lot of specifics on that here. However, the way Work Items are used, the Architecture Explorer, and the way you can model your application's work and/or do mockups is covered very well. Visual Studio 2012 changed the way things work quite a bit, but the changes have ultimately been for the better. I'm very pleased with how much this book extends the also-excellent 2010 version. The language is good for a non-technical person to understand and the level of detail is just about right for beginner to intermediate level use of Visual Studio / TFS.
If you want to talk about the technical side of implementing Team Foundation Server, such as how to install, configure, or transition your team, I also recommend the book "Professional Team Foundation Server" - think of that book as your 'Initiation Phase' guide and this book as your 'Planning & Implementing Phase' book.
