'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

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. He was coeditor of Social Dimensions of Health and Disease: New Zealand Perspectives (1994). Most of his undergraduate and graduate teaching has focused on research methods, particularly multivariate data analysis.
