This book presents the Computational-Representational Understanding of the Mind (CRUM). To be fair, the book is particularly well written and provides extremely helpful end of chapter summaries. Yet while the author does try to be even handed in presenting often opposing theories, there are definite preferences communicated. In short, it's an intriguing book on current thinking on how we really think.

Very good book regarding the Computational Representational Understanding of Mind (CRUM). Althought only focusing on one theory to explain the fucntioning of our mind it has concise and easy to understand explanations, going from the most basic representations to the most complex.

Thagard's book is little more than an extremely superficial skim of and introduction to cognitive science. I know that the book is supposed to be a simple introduction, but in many ways it is far to simplistic and glossed over. There are many times at which he introduces new terms and concepts without defining them. He also jumps around quite a bit. His examples are very short and do not provide much insight beyond the obvious. Unless you need the book for class, I would avoid it. If you are just looking for an informative introduction to cognitive science, this is not the book for you.

I thought the book sounded intriguing and was actually interested in the topic but found the book quite boring. I was not a fan of the organization of the book and found it kind-of confusing. I had to read the book for a college class, but would have tried to return it had I bought it for myself outside of class.
