I did a review of a bunch of multivariate books for multivariate
classes to be taught at our department; see
http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/listmania/fullview/R3312L94GKFZD1/,
or if it does not come out, type "multivariate" in amazon.com search
bar, it should give a reference to the Listmania! list. Tabachnik and
Fidell is comprehensive, but not very deep; I think there are much
better books there, but I am viewing them as a statistician, not as a
user.
