John Laird's book gives a complete account of the momentous developments that have occurred in the Soar Cognitive Architecture. This book is a must-read for researchers and students who are interested in the grand goals of Cognitive Science and AI.(John R. Anderson, Carnegie Mellon University)
John Laird has been at the forefront of research on cognitive architectures since the early 1980s and this book is a culmination of nearly 30 years of work. The book is a substantial achievement and a fine synthesis of the author's work. It provides both a study of how integrated computational mechanisms can generate intelligent behavior and a renewed opportunity for cognitive science to pursue integrated theories. It is essential reading.(Andrew Howes, School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham)
A clear and comprehensive account of decades of effort aimed at understanding intelligence and building intelligent systems. The detailed discussion of cognitive architectures, the enumeration of criteria for judging cognitive architectures, and the description of SOAR make this a book that belongs in the library of everyone seriously interested in AI and its applications.(Patrick Henry Winston, Ford Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
The SOAR enterprise is one of the most interesting big bets in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. John Laird's impressive book provides an excellent synopsis of the important ideas, results, and new directions in SOAR research. Anyone interested in the computational modeling of minds should read this book.(Ken Forbus, Northwestern University)

Called Soar. Book is based upon the author long time esearch results. Nice thing about Soar is
Soar is open to use. Therefore,the reader can modelling his problem using Soar system. I have kindle
version and this is good to read. Nice things of this book contans historical back ground of
Soar approach and make comparison with other system like Act modelling. Now, I woud like to
model of driving using Soar system. The book has wide perpective on cognition from problem
Solving to emotion. So it is good to think about big pictures on human cognition.
