I wanted to like this new book about Sargent Shriver, a Kennedy brother-in-law I admired. The memoir is written by his son Mark and includes information about Shriver's government service and family life. I found myself skimming through the 39 short chapters. Mark Shriver is not a skilled writer and his book is a chore to read.
I did skim through parts of this book, and will probably look for a biography to get more of the factual side of Sargent Shriver, but I think his son's book showed his heart in a way no outsider could. Anything I read about him in the future will be shaded by the picture presented here.
