Dr Kalam is among the handful of people I respect in the Indian polity and business arena --along with Ratan Tata, Mr Murthy and a few others. I've nothing but respect for him and his humility, and this book only enhances that. The book is a detailed analysis of what it takes for the country to be developed by 2020. What does it mean to be developed? "A reasonable lifespan, an occupation that would provide them basic comforts and good health care. This is our dream of a developed India." Unlike the jingoistic "super-power" nonsense, it's about growth with humility. The books address every conceivable area and is replete with line charts, bar charts, tables and a lot of other statistics. The dream is not merely articulated, but the path to reach there is looked at in detail. Note that this is really not a casual read; unless you're really involved with the topic, you might find it to be a bit too detailed for your taste. I don't see a "Look Inside" for this book on Amazon; so I'm posting the TOC here.
