This book is one of the many biographies out there on the life of Abdul J Kalam, India’s ex-president and a scientist unparalleled. What may not be known to many is the fact that Abdul J Kalam had an ordinary background, one where he had to fight and strive for every opportunity that came this way. As a result of his determination and grit, he managed to change the landscape of Indian science for the better and was able to see India through one of the tumultuous phase, where India faced an intellectual blockade as a result of sanctions on account of the nuclear test. This book neatly manages to chart the remarkable life that is Abdul Kalam and brings to fore all the challenges he had to face, both personally and professionally. A definite must read and one of the best books out there.
