*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

"'This book introduces the multidimensional scaling (MDS) as a psychological model and as a data analysis technique for the applied researcher. ... The book is unique in its orientation on the applied researcher, whose primary interest is in using MDS as a tool to build substantive theories. ... The primary audience of this book are psychologists, social scientists, and market researchers. No particular background knowledge is required, beyond a basic knowledge of statistics.'"
