Praise for the first edition:
Clarity and conciseness have always been the hallmarks of Everitt’s writing. This book is no exception. Anyone looking for a clearly written text on the subject that is also practitioner oriented needs to look no further.
—Chuck Chakrapani, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A, 2012… a clear, wellorchestrated guide to multivariate statistics for the postgraduate and professional behavioural scientist who possesses basic statistical knowledge. … Everitt successfully crafts a wellintegrated introductory text that obviates potential difficulties by including real problems and their data sets. … the book’s applied orientation introduces the behavioural scientist to both the use and rudimentary understanding of multivariate techniques. … The book would also serve well as a training guide for the practitioner less experienced in multivariate techniques. …
—Psychometrika, June 2010… The first two chapters give a magnificent introduction before approaching the modeling issues. Especially the second chapter, which shows how to look at data, is among the best I have ever seen in books on multivariate methods. … He also goes well beyond the typical graphs showing how to explore real insights of the data. … the book is extremely easy to browse and read. … Putting the R code in an appendix and on the website is an excellent choice. … the huge experience of the author … makes the presentation so clear and understandable. I’ll be happy to recommend this book to students and researchers.
—International Statistical Review, 2010"Since there is always a shortage of multivariate statistical texts, it was uplifting to see a potential new text for the multivariate curriculum. As the authors state, this text goes far beyond the typical multivariate statistics text for psychologists or even statisticians. The text covers the spectrum of multivariate analysis (regressions, principa
