In this intimate portrait of an extraordinary father-son relationship, Mark K.

Shriver discovers the moral principles that guided his legendary father and applies them to his own lifeWhen Sargent Sarge Shriver—founder of the Peace Corps and architect of President Johnsons War on Poverty—died in 2011 after a valiant fight with Alzheimers, thousands of tributes poured in from friends and strangers worldwide. These tributes, which extolled the daily kindness and humanity of a good man, moved his son Mark far more than those who lauded Sarge for his big-stage, headline-making accomplishments. After a lifetime searching for the path to his fathers success in the public arena, Mark instead turns to a search for the secret of his fathers joy, his devotion to others, and his sense of purpose. Mark discovers notes and letters from Sarge- hears personal stories from friends and family that zero in on the three guiding principles of Sarges life—faith, hope, and love—and recounts moments with Sarge that now take on new value and poignancy. In the process, Mark discovers much about himself, as a father, as a husband, and as a social justice advocate. A Good Man is an inspirational and deeply personal story about a son discovering the true meaning of his fathers legacy.
