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.

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!

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.
