From the reviews: "The Guide to Biomolecular Simulations intends to provide students and nonexperts with an introductory, self-contained course about the application of molecular dynamics and related methodologies. The book emerged from a biophysics course held at Harvard in the 1990s and is therefore suited for standalone self-study as well as for classroom use ... . And finally, a reader who successfully worked through the book obtained significant experience in using CHARMM, one of the most widely used molecular dynamics packages in biomolecular simulations."
