From the PublisherI found the text enjoyable and easy to read. The authors provide a sufficient description of all the methodology for practical use. Each chapter includes at least one real world dataset analysis and the software commands summary tables included at the end of every chapter should be particularly helpful to a practitioner of statistics. … I would recommend the text for practitioners of statistics looking for a handy reference, particularly those performing basic analysis in the health sciences.

Praise for Previous Editions:
For the past 20 years, whenever I had an occasion to review a multivariate method…this was the book that I grabbed first. These books kept the mathematical content to the minimally necessary material and used a wealth of nice examples. One of its attractions is that it is a practical text that works well with nonstatisticians who have had a decent statistics course. It also continues to be an excellent book for the statistician's bookshelf.

This book is an excellent presentation of computer-aided multivariate analysis. I believe that it will be a very useful addition to any scholarly library … it provides a comprehensive introduction to available techniques for analyzing data of this form, written in a style that should appeal to non-specialists as well as to statisticians.

This is a text for a broad spectrum of researchers … who may find it very useful as it stresses the importance of understanding the concepts and methods through useful real life illustrations.

A key feature of this book is that it can be used in conjunction with any or all of the following very well-known software tools: S-Plus, SAS, SPSS, STATA, and STATISTICA.
