Sargent Shriver memorialized by son Mark Kennedy Shriver in new book 'A Good Man'

The accomplishments of the late Sargent Shriver are remarkable. He helped President Kennedy create the Peace Corps. He was the U.S. Ambassador to France in the late 1960s. He also served as President of the Special Olympics.

But Sergeant Shriver's son Mark Kennedy Shriver says his father was not only great, he was good. The book, "A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sergeant Shriver" looks back at the legacy of Sargent Shriver and Mark shares some of the lessons he remembers from his remarkable dad.
