Watch Cami's appearance on the Today Show!

Praise for 29 Gifts:

“In the African village, the relentless challenge of physical survival causes people to dig deep into the well of their psyches to offer gifts of the heart-to family, community, spirit. These are the simple gestures which flow over the barrenness of daily living and the lack of creature comforts. Cami and Mbali have joined forces to help us realize that the spirit of the village lives in the simplest of kind-hearted and well-intentioned gestures, wherever they are offered. The message of this book has never been more relevant, more needed, more valuable.” —Malidoma Patrice Somé, author of Of Water and the Spirit

29 Gifts is luminous, vivid and transformative. Reading and living its words will contribute to the world in mighty ways!”
—SARK, national bestselling-author of Succulent Wild Woman and creator, PlanetSark.com


Reviews:


“Why not embrace the spirit of giving with your own 29 days of kindness?”
Oprah.com

"Walker's a plucky writer, and it's hard not to be inspired by her story. Can "29 Gifts" work? Well, at the very least, it makes you more aware of the good in your life, and it shifts the focus from yourself to others." —Boston Globe

“It reminded me a lot of Michael J Fox’s book, since it was more about the journey rather than the author…29 Gifts is a great read. The author’s tone throughout the book is extremely friendly and upbeat, even while recounting her darkest moments…This is the practical component of The Secret… One of the many things I found great about this book is that while it exudes positivism, the author, Cami Walker, is a realist…The relative simplicity of the 29 gifts movement is refreshing…A fantastic book.” —Blogcritics.org

“Glimpses into Walker's day-to-day difficulties—work, family life, constant therapeutic treatment and addiction recovery among them—crop up among the stories of her daily gifts, grounding the work (based on Walker's Web site) in personal details. … An admirable reworking of The Secret (in that it should actually help someone).” —Publishers Weekly

29 Gifts stands out among other ‘inspirational’ books because Walker doesn't hold back. She describes her disease and symptoms in vivid detail. And it's that bravery which makes the process ring true. Following Walker's journey, one realizes that most of us give many little gifts each day. But without the right mindset, they seem like little tasks instead…Read all at once or at leisure, 29 Gifts is worth your time. Not only does it put a face on MS, it puts a face on perceptions and the power of the mind to overcome adversity.”Deseret News

“This book…is now officially and wholeheartedly a part of my permanent library—and my heart.”—BiblioBuffet.com

“It’s all very uplifting, potentially of genuine value in teaching people to look outside themselves and the daily grind of their lives.”—InfoDad.com

“Maybe you've caught the buzz on 29 Gifts: How a Month of Giving Can Change Your Life. Since Walker's appearance on the Today show two weeks ago, her inspirational story is making the rounds at light speed. Why are people so intrigued with this? Because her message is perfect for these uncertain times. For those of us immersed in pity parties because things aren't going our way, Cami's book offers a way to transform our lives and help the people around us. The best part: It doesn't have to cost a dime.” —Tampa Tribune

“Walker presents a story that gets to the core of the emotional pain and loneliness that people feel when suffering from a serious disease like multiple sclerosis…Readers will instantly connect with this narrative of her journey to find an alternative to withering away in her apartment…Her story unfolds nicely, and the reader is left with a good picture of what it’s like to live with MS. Walker turns what could have been a book about self-pity into a great read about pain and a creative way to get on with life.” —Library Journal
