When Sargent "Sarge" Shriver - founder of the Peace Corps and architect of President Johnson's War on Poverty - died in 2011 after a valiant fight with Alzheimer's, 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 father's success in the public arena, Mark instead turns to a search for the secret of his father's 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 Sarge's 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 father's legacy.

Wie durchbreche den Dualismus von Macht und Liebe?
...Sei ein guter Mensch, wie Sargent Shriver. Die Anleitung für ein gutes Leben erscheint nach seinem Vorbild so einfach und doch so unerträglich schwer zugleich: Tue gutes - Bedingungslosnund so gut Du kannst.
