Most of the planet's wildlife has become extinct, and a consortium called the Big Five controls and manipulates everyone's lives. The people's health and well-being have been dulled down by a diet devoid of nutrients and rich in sugar and processed food, and exercise has been proven to be injurious, resulting in a sedentary, alienated populace.
Magnus Battles is the being who receives the wishes people send to the Universe. It's a frustrating job to have with the superficial wishes that come his way. One night, he's visited by a prophetic and terrifying dream of a future world where all civilization has disappeared, save for the few survivors now living in tribes in the wasteland.
Magnus knew he had to stop this from happening, and he had an idea just how to do it.
Christiane Agricola's allegorical self-help book, "The Battles: Master The Secret of Success and Positive Thinking", presents a six-lesson course on success and positive thinking in an allegory of a reality show format that's really quite entertaining.
This device allows the author to show how different people can approach the guidelines set out and craft their own plans for success.
I especially appreciated the Key Takeaway sections at the end of each lesson which summarize the points covered, suggest ways to implement the material and assign challenges. Each lesson is clearly defined and presented, and the reader also gets to see as each of the contestants presents his/her own versions of success through their finished assignments.
Agricola's characters are, for the most part, appealing and representative of a good variety of everyday people. And while some may continue asking the Universe for their desires, Agricola's book offers concrete ways to make those desires happen for yourself.
"The Battles: A Fabulous Odyssey Seeking The Secret of Success and Positive Thinking" is highly recommended.
--HUGEOrange Highly recommended!
The Big Five, a group of five powerful families, controls the world and keeps it ignorant and dependent.
They have bamboozled people into seeing only paradise and plentiful, nourishing food when the reality is the world has deteriorated into slums and available food is addictive and heavily sugared. The contestants, each with a different outlook on life, are led through six trials to determine the winner.
Each step results in a gradual awakening of how to live well and be a hero to the earth.
This is an interesting (and timely) book and fun to read. Highly recommended for those searching for inspiration on changing their own lives for the better and saving our planet.
--"The stories of these people helped me to understand what I can achieve myself and where to begin."
--"Incredible perspective and storytelling [...] The style reminds me of Andy Andrews - weaving in rich and vivid stories to help you understand and apply the lessons to your life."
--"This book has become my personal life coach :-) Great job!!!"
--"We can use [this book] as examples to progress with our own big dreams. A must read!"
--"The story made me think of 1984 by Georges Orwell. In year 3000, manipulation and brainwashing have changed peoples into lazy passive creatures. Nature has been destroyed. Humanity seems doomed. But there is hope!"
--"Quirky, but highly recommended"
--"I could easily see it being a book you read a few times throughout life. Just as a refresher."

In fact, life itself can be characterized only as battles between good and evil, success and failure. People are always trying not only to achieve and reach a stated goal, but also to effect changes in their lives. At times, they fail owing to poor choices and negative thought patterns.
On this point her book becomes both useful and helpful because it not only exposes how such factors as technologies, social media sites, the wrong people in power, destructive eating habits, and the state of the environment itself determines the course of our lives, but also is packed with wisdom and provides pragmatic solutions.
Incrementally, the author instructs us how to attain success and embrace change by conveying the elements that have affected our lives negatively, by teaching us how to rid ourselves of this negativity, and by supplying an alternative avenue to healthy living. Namely, the author deploys fictional characters to demonstrate how to effect change in one's life.
The story line itself begins with concerns about the destruction of earth and the pressing need to prevent this trend. Subsequently, as the readers we encounter interesting characters, each unique in their own way with their own battles. They have a game to win and lessons to learn. Together with these characters, we the readers learn lessons that will help us achieve success in our lives. In addition, together with them, we can embrace changes through inspiration.
Reading The Battles was a true tonic, and indeed this is an inspiring and moving book, full of valuable lessons for success and self-realization and growth. Without hesitation and without reservation, I am giving it a deserved five-star rating.
Only if our beliefs about ourselves and our life purpose change, the way we act will change.
This is what this book achieves and makes it different. The success principles aren't new. But they are presented in a way that makes them touch our heart and our emotional intelligence. We start thinking and acting differently.

The Battles narrates the story of five young people in their quest for success and personal achievement. They will learn from Magnus Battles how to find their true life-purpose, take action, and achieve their big dream project. The kind of big project that will not only change their lives but also make the whole world a better place.
After reading the entire book in a couple of days, I now envision the path towards my own goals, by using my personal talents and strengths.
Success is often seen as something you realize at the expense of other people or natural resources. Magnus Battles reveals ways to become successful without hurting others or devastating our planet.
But first we need to get rid of “the bad forces” who seem to manipulate us like puppets and jeopardize our willpower and our faculties to see the world like it is.
The Battles by Christiane Agricola contains a creative mixture of fiction and success lessons, and involves numerous contemporary “hot” topics. It provides a new, easier to read approach of Wallace D. Wattles’ legacy. Highly recommended and enjoyable lecture.
