Synopsis

Making Sense of Multivariate Data Analysis An Intuitive Approach by John Spicer

'This book is a helpful guide to reading and understanding multivariate data analysis results in social and psychological research' -C. Y. Joanne Peng, Indiana University at Bloomington 'This book serves as a resource for readers who want to have an overall view of what encompasses multivariate analyses. The author has discussed some important issues rather philosophically (e.g., theory vs. data analysis). These points are valuable even for readers who have extensive training with multivariate analyses' -Jenn-Yun Tein, Arizona State University

Reviews

Spicer's book is a superb overview of multivariate statistics, but without formulas. Even though he is trying to offer a nontechnical overview of multivariate analyses, he doesn't shortchange the reader in any way. As much as you might know about stat, you'll learn some more here. -- William Dressler This book is a helpful guide to reading and understanding multivariate data analysis results in social and psychological research. -- C.

Earlier, he was a Research Fellow for several years at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and held Visiting Fellowships at the Universities of Michigan and London. His primary research interests have been in health psychology, and he has published articles mainly on cardiovascular disease and theoretical issues in a variety of international journals.
