    Flipkart Official Review

    Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s life has been an interesting one. From being born in a small village to becoming a doctor, to the country’s President, his journey literally has been intriguing and worth knowing about. In his new book, “My Journey”, Dr. Kalam takes us through his life and his inspiration, from when he was a child to date. This only should prompt you to read this book, besides other things.

    “My Journey” is an honest take on life and aspirations and how to get to achieving it all. It speaks of a man’s humble beginnings and how he still remains grounded after all these years. The writing is as simple as you can think of, which is the highlight of the book – it can be read by anyone. All said and done, “My Journey” will have you believe more in yourself and your capabilities.

     

    Published in the year 2013, My Journey: Transforming Dreams Into Actions is a collection of some key events in the life of Dr. A. P. J. Kalam, which contributed to his tremendous success as a scientist and as India’s 11th President.

    Summary Of The Book

    My Journey: Transforming Dreams Into Actions documents the life of a young boy from Rameshwaram, who not only became a renowned scientist in India, but also held the highest post that the country could ever offer. Through the course of this book, Kalam tells his readers about key events in his life that brought him to where he is, today. Kalam doesn’t only talk about him being India’s former President, but as a boy, son, student, and scientist. Kalam’s hometown, Rameshwaram, was indeed a serene place to dwell.

    Kalam speaks about his dream of becoming a fighter pilot, which crashed as he was awarded the ninth position among 25 candidates, with the selected ones being the top eight. Kalam recalls his dream of flying a machine as it rises higher into the stratosphere. He tells the readers that he received two interview calls, one from the Directorate of Technical Development and Production (DTDP) and the other from the Indian Air Force, Dehradun. Kalam goes on to explain that the DTDP interview was fairly easy, but for the Air Force, he needed to have a certain level of “smartness”, apart from the qualifications and practical knowledge. After being rejected by the IAF, he went through a trying time, where he decided to move on and become a scientist.

    He began to work tirelessly at his job as the Senior Scientific Assistant at DTDP. Kalam also speaks about his close-knit family and the impact they had on his life. Despite his childhood full of difficulties, he was able to cope because of his highly supportive family. He also speaks briefly about the peaceful co-existence of Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism, in his village. Kalam also talks about Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and the profound impact he had on his life. Kalam also talks about his tag as the “Missile Man”, as well as his unique hairstyle.

    Inspirational for youngsters

    An excellent book, it is about some lesser known experiences of APJ Kalam. The personal accounts of his childhood, portraying family members, friends and well wishers who influenced him at a tender age are very inspirational for young preteen and teenage children. The description of his parents, their love, struggles and sacrifices through the eyes of APJ as a child, their influence on his young mind and his own contribution to the family income are all very touching and inspiring.

    Must read...

    Hats off for Flipkart....They delivered two days prior estimated shipping date, as always.

    As soon as I started reading I eagerly went on. The book is truly good. It has series of anecdotes which inspired Dr. Abdul Kalam. In this book he writes about those people who had influenced his life. Those personal accounts of events feel very sincere, and deeply personal.

    Final verdict - Must read book for those who admire Dr. Kalam.

    Beautiful Anecdotes

    Pre-ordered this book in the hope of getting an author signed copy. But was not that lucky, mean while, after reading books of Abdul Kalam ( Wings of fire, Ignited Minds, Vision 2020, Turning Points, Target 3 Billion) this was just awesome, as it summed up some of the previous anecdotes and wonderfully brought out new personal anecdotes and the illustrations were aiding the idea of the chapter...
