Publisher's Summary

As founder of the Peace Corps, Head Start, the Special Olympics (with wife Eunice Kennedy Shriver), and other organizations, Sargent Shriver was a key social and political figure whose influence continues to the present day. This authorized biography, exhaustively researched and finely rendered by Scott Stossel (deputy editor of The Atlantic), reads like an epic novel, with "Sarge" marching through the historical events of the last century - the Great Depression, World War II, JFK's assassination, the Cold War, and many more.

Sarge gives us a complete account of Shriver's life, as well as a thoughtful commentary on the Kennedy family, the Peace Corps, and United States and world history. It is a riveting and comprehensive reconstruction of a life that exemplifies what it means to be a true American.

    "The life of a Saint"

    Every intellectual, democrat, Catholic and American should learn the name and story of this great man. He is clearly a saint. I will be asking for his prayers!!!

    Story
    "Amazing man!"

    The story of Sarge is an inspirational one that should make us all want to run out and do good for our community.
    The only disappointment was the mispronunciation of names and words by the narrator😬 Shame on him!
