Format: Paperback
2010 is my first implementation of TFS and so this book is reasonably useful. However I do find it quite long winded and not very concise where it needs to be. For example, they'll be long discussions about all the other build automation technologies and their histories. Also, there are some long code listings and excessive numbers of screen grabs; all of which perhaps ought to be in an appendix if they are needed. Consequently, I've had to skim read most pages to try to find the interesting and important paragraphs.

So, on the whole, the book is okay, but could have been better.

Format: Paperback
This is the de-facto book for anybody wishing to learn Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, it covers everything from the basics up to migration from heritage source code control solutions to administration and customisation. The material is well structured easy to read and well-targeted at a technical audience, this is not surprising considering the quality of the authors and their actual involvement with the development of the product. As a bonus the book also prepares you for the TFS 2010 Microsoft Certification Exam (70-512) which any professional TFS Administrator should have.

Even if you are an experienced TFS User/Administrator there is plenty of great insight to improve your TFS game.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough

So who is this book for? Well it is a comprehensive guide to TFS 2010, its components and their usage, but this does not mean the book is only for teams new to TFS or people planning to take certification exams. Spread throughout there are useful little titbits of information where you find yourself going `I never know that' or `arr.. that explains so much'

So I would suggest it is well worth a look for anyone who is working, or planning to work, with TFS
