Would you like to tell us about a lower price? 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. 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 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 and beyond as a developed nation. Read more Read less. Customers who bought this item also bought.

One of the most beautiful book, portraying the character of a man who saw India in the way we can't. Very honoured and touched by reading the book, after all it feels like we're literally being part of an extraordinary journey of an extraordinary man. Loved the book, this one is my personal favorite. Book is in good condition. There is chapter wise bifurcation of book.
Kalam sir, has tried to touch upon various situations, he came across during his presidential tenure. If one has to write a negative, then we could say that anecdotes are very breif. Readers would have love to know more about different situations. 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.
Another master piece among Abdul Kalam books. It narrates his presidential years. Like all his other books this is also a must read book especially by students. Over 2 lakh copoies sold!!. Very good book, the Experience he shared are worth reading.. Especially Education, E-governance, pending court cases, Bio-Fuel..
We're just few months away from , but we're far away from Mission to make India a developed nation!! Reading the sequel of the wings of fire. Where i was waiting to see how kalam sir became the president of india. And this book turning point is started from where the wings of fire left us. I read only 2 chapter now but i am mesmerized and couldn't stop from writing a review.
We must follow such a great soul and must be proud on them. An outstanding book from dr. Kalam as usual. It tells about story of him after his presidency and also some insights of the work done by the governments during his presidency and why he didn't stood for his next presidency tenure. I just wish I had read his books before. They give you clarity of mind about our country. And, the pages of the book is good. There are some coloured pictures of Dr. Kalam during his interactions with various people from diverse field.
One person found this helpful. See all reviews from India. Top international reviews. The man who was truly an inspiration for all. Thank you for your feedback.
Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. A very inspiring book by Dr. Kalam on his journey through his period as President of the country. It explains why he was called the people's president. All the youth in this country should read the book and be inspired by it!
Dr Kalam says there were seven turning points. For a reader every page has been a turning point - every sentence inspiring. Mission is not the responsibility of government but that of every Indian,who believes in self esteem and wants to see India a super power. What a vision! What a path to achieve the same. Dr Kalam continues to be a guiding force to the country's youth.
May he live long to see his country attains greater heights - Amen! Kalam shows how one person can change society and even the positions they hold even if it is a ceremonial post! Kalam brings his vast experience.. Only drawback is the repetition of few events described in his other famous books. A leader you will admire. I enjoyed reading this book.
Dr Kalam is specific about events that were crucial in his life. Excellenr reading. Load more international reviews. Good read! Very inspiring - Cover sinteresting projects during his tenure as president. Great thorough and written frome heart. This book is reflection of kallam sirs important turning points in his life and his decisions that were taken in various positions.
