In this review essay, numerous historical errors in The Cognitive Revolution in Psychology by <span class='Hi'>Bernard</span> J. Baars are discussed. Approximately one-half of the book is devoted to interviews of people who have been important in the cognitive revolution, but several of the interviews are less informative than they might have been. Many of the interviews involved a minimum of interaction between Baars and the interviewees. Additionally, interesting topics, the nature of representation for example, are introduced but not considered in sufficient detail to make a contribution to either cognitive science or the history of psychology.
