As a scientist with no prior experience of density functional theory (DFT) calculations, I fit the target audience of this book perfectly. I wanted a quick intuitive introduction to the subject so that I could start reading and understanding journal papers that discuss results of DFT simulations. This book passed this test with flying colors. The authors try not to burden the reader with technical details but rather to provide a 30,000-foot overview of what DFT can and cannot do. After reading this book I feel comfortable starting my own simulations (with a little help from more experienced colleagues) and digging deeper into the technical details of the DFT method.

It seems there is a dearth of good introductory material on DFT for new graduate/advanced undergraduate students. Some of the other texts/papers I've read immediately plunge into the equations, which make for a great resource, but oftentimes leave one without a qualitative picture of what is going on and how DFT codes do their work. When asked about how DFT works in my graduate school qualifying exam, I was shocked to discover that I could not supply a good qualitative, high level general explanation of DFT, despite knowing a lot of math and physics. I lacked the high level roadmap of how DFT works. This book was great for me because it gave me a general overview of how DFT works, especially in describing all the approximation methods and separating which approximations are physics related and which are computer related (something that was always fuzzy to me). The book is light on equations, but really focuses on explaining the why/how qualitatively, which was exactly what I needed. If you are a new graduate student just starting to work on problems using DFT I would recommend this book as a great starting place. After this book, I would recommend you read "Electronic Structure" by Martin (http://www.amazon.com/Electronic-Structure-Theory-Practical-Methods/dp/0521534402) because it expands on all the ideas laid out in this text.

I find these book excellent for students (and their professors) that begin their deals with DFT. I has the very basic theory, the practical habilities to begin real work (chapter 3, nuts and bolts), and also provides directions to continue learning from deeper texts.
