Join local Author, Mack Borben as he signs his newest book, The Relavance of Reason.
Our country remains a remarkable, unparalleled and bountiful nation, but there are too many Americans who have become grumpy and entitled; mistrusting and cynical; exhausted and withdrawn. We have tons of information, about everything from the political situation, our economy, social issues, our culture pretty much every area of modern life. But they are often presented with spin, bias and agenda or perceived through filters based on our age, gender, and experience.
When it comes to seeking solutions, it is time for us to once again embrace our sense of perspective, our spirit, our confidence, and above all, our sense of humor. Standing on a solid foundation of education and experience, author Mack W. Borgen, removes the tint from our lenses by presenting unvarnished data. He doesnt try to persuade or push a position. Rather, he simply brings facts to the fore and lets us determine what they mean. He suggests that by having access to objective reality makes it possible for us to regain our sense of community and our commonality. Best of all, we can -- working together -- make a significant difference. For those who love facts, care about the truth, and understand the power and the relevance of reason, this book delivers unyielding encouragement and the raw materials for creating a better future for us all. Borgens passion for setting the record straight and his caring for who we can be inspire us to do better. His book is a treasure trove of solid, fun, and at times even fascinating information we, as a people, can put to good use.

Mack W. Borgen is a native of Montana. He was raised in the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with Honors in Economics and from Harvard Law School. Thereafter, he also served more than four years in the U.S. Army.
After living in Europe for a brief period, he began a career simultaneously practicing business law and writing about various economic, political, and social matters.
Over the last five years he has devoted much of his time to the writing of this The Chance of a Lifetime series of books.
He lives with his wife and son in Santa Barbara, California and Bigfork, Montana.
