Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations
His actual turning around takes place in the book. After losing young Sulu so quickly after Kirk he falls apart, his Admiral father comes onboard and basically takes charge. The Admiral is a by-the-book, my-way-or-the-highway officer who is basically about to blow up the Excelsior for disobeying his orders and leave Sulu on a quarantined planet because he deserves it. Younger Harriman steps up at just the right moment and takes back control of the bridge, earning back the respect of his, and the Excelsior's, crew.
Like Christopher said, it's a good saving point for the character that really works with what happened on screen.
