Turning Points: A Journey Through Challenges picks up where Wings of Fire finished.
Summary Of The Book
This book, Turning Points: A Journey Through Challenges, takes up the story from when A.P.J Abdul Kalam became the President of India. It covers his acceptance of the post of the President of India, his term in office, his efforts to make his term meaningful, and the challenges he faced.
His term from 2002 to 2007 was an eventful one. The President of India is just a titular head with minimal powers. But, the office is one of great influence and Kalam used it to best effect. He got the government and the public to focus on issues that were relevant to the country's all round growth.
He initiated programs like PURA to try and integrate rural areas into the general economic and technological growth of the country. He dreamt of taking the whole of India on his vision for the country in the new millennium, and he saw no reason why the villages should be left out in this vision.
Turning Points: A Journey Through Challenges is more about Kalam’s vision for his country rather than about himself. He tries to provide a blueprint for development, and for reforms in the government and judiciary.
Dr.Kalam is a strong advocate for the use of technology and a proponent of e-governance. Even the little bits of personal experience during his term that he gives, he links with these ideas. For instance, he mentions the controversial dissolution of the Bihar assembly for which he later offered to resign. But, he does not focus on the political or personal implications of this decision, instead, he chose to highlight his use of electronic communication in lending his approval to this move, for he was in Moscow at that time.
He made the office of the President accessible to the public. He used his popularity and high visibility to inspire the youth of the country and convince them to believe in his 2020 vision for India. He urged the young people to dream big, and to believe in their country's destiny. Turning Points: A Journey Through Challenges describes the term in office of one of the most charismatic Presidents of the country.

Just as his other books, this one live right up to the expectations. A must buy for every Indian, especially the young generation. A people's president, indeed. I would consider it a sin, if, in spite of being an Indian, you haven't read this book.
This was the most awaited book for me and its truly Inspirational.... He says, "Even if One member or a person of a family is inspired or motivated then its worth writing" and I am a classic example for that... It is simple written and conveys a message.... :) Try stepping in to Kalam Sir's shoes when you read and FEEL THE CHANGE... :) Amazing work Sir... :) Keep writing and keep inspiring.... Hats off.... :)
I always thought the post of President was to do nothing but keep approving what the PM proposes. But the way APJ has articulated and the initiatives he has taken in during his presidency has created a terrific bench mark. it is a pity that the successor(s) donot have the outlook or the caliber or the attitude to carryout such initiatives... Kalam the greatest President of Modern India..Take a bow
One more PEARL from the missile man. The book describes his vision for India. I can say PROUDLY that he is a real visionary for the country. The book had stressed the vision 2020 and youth role in making it true. When i was going through it i felt that we really need STATESMAN and not the politicians (who think they are the masterminds). Kalam is the man whom we require now
