Books recommended by Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

I recently read a book "The Guiding Light" written by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. In that book, he himself lists his favorite books.

"I heard all the time that people are reading less and less these days Perhaps there are more distractions, more gadgets, our lives are too busy to find a quiet corner and savour a book. Yet, this is a habit what we need to keep alive in ourselves and inculcate in future generations. Reading is to the mind what a good meal is to the body. It sustains, it nourishes, it helps us think, it helps us grow." - APJ Abdul Kalam.
 He also suggests us to do the following.

  • Build home libraries
  • Read with your children
  • If you are a teacher, or part of a school, bring interesting, age-appropriate books into the classroom and read them together with the children.
  • Visit bookstores and libraries when you go to any new place.
