For the past 20 years, whenever I had and 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.
-Technometrics, November 2004
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.
-Zentralblatt MATH 105
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.
-Journal of the RSS, Vol. 168, 2005
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 SSTATISTICA.
