For someone who does not believe that he or she has the maturity to handle this book, and simply wants to develop an application that requires a database, I would recommend buying a more "down-to-earth" book possibly covering the RDMS that will be used. For example, if it is MySQL, then one might want to purchase
Welling's "MySQL Tutorial" (ISBN: 0672325845) for a much gentler and user-friendly introduction (or better yet the PHP and MySQL web development book if a web application is desired).
The other audience for this book are the professionals who are in charge of managing a database and/or using a database server for an industrial-strength application. In this case, Date's book is mandatory reading. May be not all of it, but certainly Parts I-IV. Reading these parts will give the professional the needed perspective on all the considerations required for successfully using or managing a database system.
In the world of database systems, Chris Date is one of the few authors who understands the importance of every minute detail involved with successfully using and managing databases. He proves that in this book, in a style that is not only academic but also quite useful and practical (especially his chapters on the relational algebra and calculus).
The author may seem pretentious when he uses Latin phrases or words like: a fortiori, per se, a priori, mutatis mutandis, etc. But who doesn't really know this? And if you don't, Google it up and you'll get the result in seconds (I had to Google a fortiori). It just doesn't seem to be that much a deal, at least not to give the book a mere one star, when it is clearly a classic and an incredible demonstration of how textbooks should be written. Another reviewer said that there was little content. I just can't believe this, seriously. For a book that boast "introduction" on its title, it goes way beyond introductions in my opinion (compare this book against others that have nothing to say about the TransRelational model!). If you know Database Systems and the relational model and the theory behind it, you shouldn't be reading any introduction books on the topic (or reviewing them like they should do something else other than introducing the subject). In my opinion, any serious computer scientist or professional IT should read this book and keep it close at hand. But that is just my judgment.
*sigh* I can't believe this book has an average of 3.5 starts. I really can't.
