Chasing Lost Times: A Father and Son Reconciled Through Running


Chasing Lost Times: A Father and Son Reconciled Through Running Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book as much about fathers and sons as it is about an emotionally driven obsession with running

Geoffrey Beattie is an extremely successful academic and celebrity psychologist. He was perhaps a less successful father. His obsession with his career and his driving passion for running when he was at home almost destroyed his relationship with his son, but, ironically, it is running that has brought them back together. This is the emotional story of a father and son trying to repair a relationship through a shared activity that depends on sheer physical effort, the kind of physical effort that may once have been the source of commonality between father and son in all previous generations but which seems to be absent in the modern world.

About the Author

Geoffrey Beattie is the resident psychologist in the popular reality show Big Brother UK. He is the author of Visible Thought: The New Psychology of Body Language; his academic publications have appeared in a variety of international journals, including Nature; and he has written for a range of newspapers and magazines, including the Guardian, the Independent, the Observer, and the Times. Ben Beattie's ambition is to become an elite runner, a goal that he juggles with full-time work.
