Kalam has covered significant portion of his life from childhood, to schooling, to his career as a scientist encompassing every bit of detail for the readers. The sequel book - The Turning Points, throws light on his life as The President of India from to which he illustrates narrating his motives and vision for a developed India through his mission India The book is descriptive of his activities and travels made to realize his dream; set aside parameters for people from different backgrounds and positions toward achieving the goal of 'India - A Developed Nation'.

How every single one of us can make the difference seen and felt with constant determined efforts and with a high level of confidence and perseverance.

Also most of them employ the seasonal crops, it is highly difficult for them to compromise with their living standards with this feeble income. As they don't find any other trading opportunities they migrate to urban areas to get the living back. In order to cater this issue, Dr. Kalam has designed a concept of PURA.

PURA groups has been established all over the India. The main function of the PURA Society is to build the infrastructure with in the villages from State and Central funds and to bridge the gap for bringing more trade opportunities to them. This will limit the number of migrations happening in the existing system. Another innovative concept which amused me is "Energy Independence". Woking with Bio technology scientists, he has brought the concept of Bio Diesel to the limelight.

There is a plant called 'Jatropha". This extraction is a powerful substituent for Diesel and thus achieving the energy independence. Kalam has drawn multiple measures in the verge of working for Mission I wish if every one of us start working towards the objective, we will realise that we are not far behind the destiny and it is in the arm reaching distance.

It is full of unnecessary technical details and he talks a lot about Information Technology, Bio-Informatics, Photonics, Microelectronics and Nano-Technology and stuffs like that I expected a little bit more material from Social-Sciences perspective - especially Politics and inside story of Functions of Rashtrapati Bhawan.
