It’s difficult to know just how to review this book. It wasn’t a bad book, but maybe it’s that I am just not as much into this type of book. Or maybe it’s that her idea of changing karma is different than mine.

On the positive side, it’s a short book, and very quick and easy to read.

Infinity Stone decided that she needed to perk up her spiritual life and decided to focus on the 3 areas of gratitude, connecting, and giving back. She picked a 40-day period – from Thanksgiving to New Year’s – to work on this, and this book is sort of a diary of that 40-day period.

If you want to sample a variety of religious ideas or other spiritual practices, or you are looking for a unique type of charity to support, you would probably enjoy this book.

Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the world but are just too busy? Infinity Stone found herself in that same situation but decided to do something about it regardless. In 40 Day Shift, she demonstrates how anyone can change the world from the comfort of his or her own home.

I began "Shift" with a bit of trepidation—forty days seemed too brief a commitment to shift one’s perspective let alone make a significant impact to the millions of people in need. However, each of the forty days helped me to see the bigger picture: we are at the dawn of a new age in which each of us, through the power of the internet, can magnify our footprint. At the press of a button, we can help prison inmates turn puppies into PTSD dogs, help correct a child’s cleft palate, combat human trafficking or provide loans to social entrepreneurs that when repaid are recycled to help other entrepreneurs.

As Infinity’s reach grew day by day, she described each charity in detail, discussed her reasons for donating to it and then offered a link for reference. As I read, I learned a bit about Infinity, an insurance salesperson who works long hours but always takes time to care for her physical and mental health--an open-minded and non-judgmental woman who, on the rare occasions where she offers advice, does it without expectation.

40 Day Shift opened my mind to a world of possibilities and to the fact that there is nothing that stands in the way of me or anyone else mirroring what Infinity Stone did. Even better, with links to more than forty incredible charities, readers can use her book as a springboard.

I highly recommend 40 Day Shift, a quick read that inspires, uplifts and will move you stop making excuses and start improving the world through the power of the internet. Thank you, Infinity, for recording your journey and lighting the way. I hope that you will continue what you have started and encourage others to do the same.

I enjoyed reading about this personal story of navigating the author’s spiritual path and being drawn to do something for the greater good. If you ever felt a similar calling to help but not sure how, the author gives several examples with various charitable web links. I found it inspiring and useful.

Infinity Stone tells a unique and believable personal story and makes giving both a creative and energizing process. One can feel the writer's passion for shaping a better world. One can sense, also, that giving is about till it feels good. The book sparks the desire to engage in one's own 40 day shift...and not just talk about it. This reads comfortably, too, like a conversation with a wise and generous friend.

Forming a habit of doing something spiritual is not an easy task. Faith without works is dead, as some say. The author, Infinite Stone, says, “Everyone has their own way of feeling a sense of a Higher Source.” I much agree. Sending thought towards saints, angels, or directly to God are ways for prayers to be answered. Volunteering is also a great way to help others. Being altruistic is not an easy task, it requires action as well as prayers and thoughts.
Stone went on a 40 day adventure searching out charitable causes. Each day she either made a donation or did some charitable activity. For example, she donated blood at the Red Cross, volunteered at an assisted living facility, collected canned goods for a local church’s work for homeless shelters, and volunteered at a local food bank. Some of the charitable causes included EJAF (Elton John Aids Foundation), Operation Gratitude (to send thank you cards and care packages to troops in the trenches, Hopewell (to recuperate people with mental difficulties), RAINN (anti-sexual assault organization), Make-A-Wish Foundation (to children with a life threatening condition, American Cancer Society, and many, many more.
Stone also attempted to quiet her mind and body by attending Yoga classes, Reiki sessions, Tapping sittings, meditation practices, reading spirituality books, and requesting the presence of Archangel Michael for healing. She was surprised with her 40-day adventure and plans to continue her sharing.
The book is fast reading. I did not realize how many different charities there are in which to share our own wealth with those less fortunate. For ideas, I challenge you to read this book for ideas and encouragement to start giving also. I much enjoyed the book. Thanks for sharing your experience with the rest of us.

Thank you, Infinity, for sharing your Karma adventure with us. Sometimes we are so busy with our own lives that we forget that somewhere in this world we can make a change by just being there. How that being there will change our lives and what this mean for us. Very interesting and inspiring to make this a project of love the author gives several examples with various charitable web links if you do not know where to start. This is also a great way to help others and without knowing helping yourself. If everybody could have the same passion to create a better world it would be haven on earth. All good will came back to you. Wat you sow you will reap. Every action has a reaction

I loved the heart behind Infinity Stone's decision to journal her giving and inner healing 40 day journey. My favorite quote is from Day 5 "It only takes a small amount of effort to make a big impact." Stone shows us all how true this is. Truly a beautiful journey to follow.

The tone is relatable and straightforward yet dashed with these little lines throughout -- the contrast of 'charitable ads to sweater dresses and boots, the forbidden fruit aisle in the grocery store, the professional community saying to adjust medication, the NPR doing our philosophizing for us because we don't have time...'
