Format: Paperback
I first ran across Romesburg's "Cluster Analysis for Researchers" when I was designing my dissertation. Unlike most books on multivariate statistics, this volumee spoke to me in a language I could understand. The author assumes no previous knowledge of the topic, and does a fine job of providing the reader with a framework. Examples are clear and well chosen.

For years, I looked for a reasonably priced copy of this book for my personal library. I'm thrilled that it is in print again. This paperback edition is published by [...] and is faithful to the original version. It is highly recommended as an introduction to cluster analysis.

I originally borrowed this book from a library rather than bought it because I was worried that the book was published before the PC age and wouldn't cover modern clustering methods. That concern is legitimate--the book didn't even mention K-means. But the author did a great job explaining the logic behind cluster analyses. There are many subjective choices to make in performing a cluster analysis, with or without the aid of modern computing powers. The author highlighted the aspects of consideration when facing such choices, for example, why one would want to standardize the data matrix, what properties the (myriad) similarity coefficients have. The explanations are clear and to the point. I feel that I now know enough about what I need/what a cluster analysis can do, that I can decide with reasonable confidence which clustering methods out there may be appropriate for my analyses. I'm now buying the book for future reference.

I dont like this book. I find its structure confusing and its layout very unattractive (no margins!). I have used it with some similar book, and every time a have tried to look for some topic in this book i found it failed (or at least did at bad job).

I recomment B.S Everitt, Cluster Analysis for an overview, and Gan, Ma And Wu: Data clustering, theory, algoritms and applications for at very comprehensive how-to guide for the many different methods.

I used this book when I did my PhD.
It's not flashy but does the job.
Keep in mind that this explains the 'how' of cluster analysis, and does not use software to do it.
Given that many software packages now have the ability to do cluster analysis, then this book can be viewed more of a 'how-to' than anything else.

I found this book to be more technical than I had anticipated...but I did find the case studies particularly informative.
