Just over a year from the death of the legendary Sargent Shriver, who made such contributions to history as founding the Peace Corps, his son, Mark Shriver, wrote a memoir that captures why he was “A Good Man.”
The book tells stories of what it was like to deal with the death of JFK and how first lady Jacqueline Kennedy bequeathed the responsibility of his memorial service on Sargent as well as stories of international travels, and his final years with Alzheimer’s. Mark Shriver recently sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today Show to talk about the book – watch the video below:
