About the Book
Born on October 15, 1931 in Rameswaram, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, President Kalam had to struggle really hard to climb up the ladder of success and reach where he was. One of the most distinguished scientists of India, he was the recipient of honorary doctorates from as many as 30 universities and institutions. His simple recipe for success helped millions of Indians achieve their dreams. Everything he said would become something to ponder on, something to draw inspiration from. In this book, we have tried to capture many of his glorious eccentricities that made him a people’s man. His life was a mirror of an aspirational India seeking a new narrative. This book will help illuminate the path and lead you from dreams to the world of reality and success.
