This is the wrong group for your question, but try the book:
Kim H. Esbensen: "Multivariate Data Analysis - in practixe", 4th edition,
CAMO ASA, Norway
ISBN: 82 - 993330-2-4

In the book are 3 chapters with about 100 pages about PCA --- Principal
Component Analysis.
Hope this helps.

Greetings from Croatia,
