Product description

Review


"This is the first running book I've read that I think, wow this is like peeking into my brain and my way of thinking. I will be reading it again and again."

CHRIS SOLINSKY, Former American Record Holder - 10,000 m (26:59.60)


"Lace up for a powerful story of commitment, loss, aspiration and an unlikely challenger of systematic oppression."

ANDY SCHMITZ, US Olympic Coach - Triathlon


"The Slummer's inspiring story pits the indomitable spirit of a runner against economic disparity and genetic engineering in a believable, dystopian tomorrow."

JONATHAN BEVERLY, Editor in Chief - PodiumRunner


"I couldn't help but lace up my shoes and go for a run."

COLORADO RUNNER Magazine


"Well written, there is a message of oppression, hope and determination. Is this where we are headed in spite of all the talk of affirmative action? Thought-provoking and one of those reads that leaves a mark."

About the Author

Geoffrey Simpson was born and raised in Avon Lake, Ohio, just outside Cleveland. He attended Avon Lake High School and competed in the state cross country and track & field championships on multiple occasions. At Kent State he graduated from the School of Technology and was a member of the Track & Field and Cross Country programs. His primary events were the 5,000 meters (14:57) and 10,000 meters (31:14). After graduating from Kent State University, he built a career in program management throughout various technology companies and is now a global PMO manager. His family of two boys, Jonathan and Henry, and his beloved wife Lili, impassion his craving for adventure. An adventurous spirit which is passed down to his sons. Now living with his family in Minden, Germany, in the pre-dawn hours, he is an author. Geoffrey is the author of the middle-school aged adventure-mystery series, The Three Hares, and the near-future, speculative fiction novel, The Slummer. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
