I sat in the Chinese restaurant next to the Eagle super market in Normal, Illinois, during the spring semester of 1999 while I was completing a master's degree in clinical psychology. I was talking to Charu Thakral about how I wanted to take more statistics classes, especially multivariate statistics, but could not do so because I had not taken the Experimental Design class yet (which was an entire class basically devoted to the Analysis of Variance).

This is not a starters' book in stats. You need some grounding in methodology, or with simpler books, first. My stats professor refers to this as "the bible," and I see why, but this book is not for the faint of heart. I appreciate it most for the succint examples of write-ups for each type of analysis. I have referred to those time and time again in my doctoral program.

This used to be one of the best references in the field. However, it is somehow outdated now. A well-updated edition is definitely needed..
