BOARDMAN -- Youngstown author Brian Keith West will be the Barnes & amp; Noble bookstore in the Shops at Boardman Park, Boardman-Canfield Road, at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 to discuss and sign copies of his book, "The Method Eight II: The Messenger."
In "Method Eight," West's puts forth his own theories and philosophies about the power of the mind, how it affects reality and time, and how he believes it is the key to the universe. He believes the earth's galaxy revolves in a figure eight, which explains the existance of black holes in the galaxy, which in turn leads to the possiblity of time travel, albeit mentally, not physcially. He also shows the mind's relationship with love, hate, trust, words, genetics, dreams, war, and even religion.
West is working on the whole series of books known as "The Method Eight" series.
