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). Just then, Matthew Hesson-McInnis, the head ...more

Recommends it for: anyone who needs to use real stats
Recommended to Lisa by: a cute young stats professor
This is the best stats reference ever--both comprehensive and accessible. I've read various chapters of this book at different times, as needed. When I was navigating my dissertation without any help, as a stats-phobe, this book was my savior. It's because of this book that I am confident enough to coach/tutor other students as they navigate their own dissertations. And I refer to this book all the time in that context. So in the end, this text has made me back far more than the hundred bucks I ...more

This book has too much about the SPSS software if you're just looking for a book on Multivariate Statistics.

A very useful reference point.

There is so much to be found within these pages. Whatever it is you are searching for within the book comes with very useful information, giving clear explanations before going into more depth to develop your understanding. Whether you wish to read from cover to cover, or simply use as a reference for once or two things, this book will help.

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 book gives a great overview of the different multivariate analyses that are available. The book goes very in-depth with matrices and equations, yet doesn't lose the reader, even when they are not mathematically gifted.

Very readable for a math book. I'm liberal arts student and this has been a breath of fresh air compared to most math/stat books I've been assigned in the past.

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 However, it is somehow outdated now.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..
