What this book DOES NOT help you with, is the actual practical guide to conducting factor analyses on statistical software. It doesn't give a broad overview of the many types of rotation, extraction techniques, and does not go into much detail on confirmatory factor analysis.
That being said, what this book DOES do is provide the reader with a sound knowledge of the many confusing terms and methods of factor analysis. It actually makes conducting a principle components analysis by hand seem really easy- and I think doing some of the statistics by hand is by far the best way to learn.
However, this is really a basic introduction- it provides excellent descriptions of terms used in factor analysis- but it doesn't really give you a good guide to conducting your own analysis. So buy something else too!
After all, good reading, worth the price.
