Product Description

Review

The previous edition (2E) was reviewed by Nemeth (1997), who was enthusiastic about the book's role as 'an excellent, easy-to-read introduction to the analysis of multivariate data'Her summary continues to work just fine for this new editionChapter summaries, always a nice feature, have been added throughoutthis is a nice book to have around to loan to people who are just getting started in multivariate analysis.

First Sentence
The statistical methods that are described in elementary texts are mostly univariate methods because they are only concerned with analyzing variation in a single random variable. Read the first page

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By David Paul Young on 19 Dec. 2004
Format: Paperback
Last time I did stats was at A-Levels but recently need it for my PhD. Most Multivariate stats books assume you are doing a degree in stats, this one doesn't. This is the first time I've been using multivariate stats (been a little scared if it before) however, it's been a pleasure reading and learning from this book.
The book keeps the explanations simple and gives examples on how to calculate the different stats methods. The most important part of this book, I find most stats books assume you already know this, is that it give guidance on when you should use a particular stats method and states it's pros and cons.
This is definitely the book for you if you need to know more about stats but don't come from a stats background!

Format: Paperback
I can not overemphasise how great a book this is for anyone starting out, or even working in, the field of multivariate statistics. Comes with standard examples which are used throughout the book by all the techniques, thereby offering a quick comparison. It is like a tutorial which uses consistent notation throughout! A big plus!

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I have read the 1986 edition of this book. I was extremely surprised to find a book with the perfect level of detail suitable for life scientists. It is an art to be able to write multivariate statistics for a non-statistician audience.

nice and concise 19 May 2008
By Michael R. Chernick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bryan Manly is an excellent writer who has published numerous books particularly in the area of permutation tests and resampling procedures. He provides rigor but is not overly detailed. This is the kind of text that would give you a nice overview of multivariate analysis and an appreciation for applications. It also serves as a nice reference source for a refresher on the basics. It would not be used as a course text for a graduate course in multivariate analysis because it is not detailed enough.

Good balance of text, equations and references 30 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unlike the full textbooks which slog through the material, Manly briskly moves along through the topics and illustrates the techniques with real numbers. References to the original papers are available as are hint for computer support -- which are sadly dated (Lotus 1-2-3?). Lightweight, easy to read on the bus, and nicely typeset.

Just what it says: A primer 12 Dec. 2008
By Alethephant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great first book to read if you are getting started with multivariate methods. It is very easy to read, has a (relatively) low mathematical threshold, and illustrates results with interesting datasets.

What it doesn't have is solid connections to more recent (last decade) results nor to modern statistical program systems, such as R, SAS or SPSS.

The second book you read on multivariate methods should be one published in the last 5 years. A recent book on data mining would be apropos for the non-statistician.
Conceptual in Approach 23 Oct. 2013
By Andre L. Blanchard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book that takes a very conceptual approach to teaching the subject. It is fairly non-technical with the objective of introducing readers to the subject. It is not a book that in my opinion that could stand alone. You will need supplementary texts for more details. I read each subject area to get a feel for the material and a conceptual understanding of the techniques and then I read a more substantial book to get into details. I rate it highly because I think it meets its objectives
