    Description
    It was like any other day on the Anna University campus in Chennai. I had delivered a lecture 'Vision to Mission' and the session got extended from one hour to two. I had lunch with a group of research students and went back to class. As I was returning to my rooms in the evening the vice-chancellor, Prof. A. Kalanidhi, fell in step with me. Someone had been frantically trying to get in touch with me through the day, he said. Indeed, the phone was ringing when I entered the room. When I answered, a voice at the other end said, 'The prime minister wants to talk with you ...' Some months earlier, I had left my post as principal scientific adviser to the government of India, a Cabinet-level post, to return to teaching. Now, as I spoke to the PM, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, my life was set for an unexpected change. Turning Points takes up the incredible Kalam story from where Wings of Fire left off. It brings together details from his career and presidency that are not generally known as he speaks out for the first time on certain points of controversy. It offers insight not only into an extraordinary personality but also a vision of how a country with a great heritage can become great in accomplishment, skills and abilities through effort, perseverance and confidence. It is a continuing saga, above all, of a journey, individual and collective, that will take India to 2020 and beyond as a developed nation.

    THE BOOK WITH A VISION

    THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST OF KALAM BOOKS I HAVE READ.IT CONTAINS MANY THINGS INCLUDING HIS TRAVEL PLANS IN MAY-2012.HE HAS JUSTIFIED MANY OF HIS CONTROVERSIAL POLITICAL DECISIONS IN THIS BOOK. HE IS ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT THE DECLINING STANDARDS OF OUR PARLIAMENT.HE FEELS THAT PARLIAMENT IS NOT AT ALL SERIOUS ABOUT THE PROBLEMS OF COMMON PEOPLE.WITHOUT MENTIONING THE NAME OF ANNA HAZARE AND RAMDEV HE TALKS ABOUT CORRUPTION AND BLACK MONEY.BY MANY OF HIS POLITICAL DECISIONS, (WHICH IS REALLY GOOD ...

    Inspirational

    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.

    Result Oriented Approaches

    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

    Salaaam Kalam Sir... !!! :)

    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....
