Publisher's Summary

Given the volatile state of the world, it is no coincidence that superheroes have captured our imagination like never before. Everywhere you look, superheroes have broken free from their comic book pages and become a dynamic aspect of the culture at large. Superheroes are imbued with magical powers that challenge the laws of space and time, offering us a vision of a world that can change. By exploring the boundaries of energy and awareness, allowing us to better understand ourselves and our potential, superheroes can help us save the planet in a very real way.
From Buddha's search for truth to Batman's struggle with his dark side, from Wolverine exposing his greatest fears to Hanuman's divine gifts of inspiration, New York Times best-selling author Deepak Chopra with his son Gotham, author and cofounder of Liquid Comics, decode the seven essential laws that govern the realm of superheroes both ancient and modern, cosmic and commercial, and explain their relevance, importance, and perhaps most critically, how to apply them to our daily lives. These seven new transformative laws will help us all uncover greater happiness, courage, balance, creativity, compassion, and purpose in our lives. Each law has the potential to awaken us to our own superpowers and together these laws offer the potential to change our lives and the world around us.

Is there a worse narrator on the planet?

First, he sounds like he's reading a script for the first time, so the cadence is wrong. Then he's obviously not a native speaker and his pronunciation is horrible.

As to the content, it's wrong in some places. As a comic reader for decades, I may be a bit jaded, but I expected some competence. He claims no superhero is motivated by guilt (*cough*Spider-Man) and all superheroes are emotionally balanced (Because Legion is sooo well balanced, and Iron Man is totally immune to addictive tendencies).

It's not all bad. When Chopra is playing in his accustomed sandbox, he's got his a game on. If you're into that, you might like it. Comic fans, don't bother.

False advertising

As others have said before the ideas in this book are interesting and might have been good in a book on their own. However the author tries to market the book for those intrigued by super heroes by drawing correlations between super heroes and the schools of thought he's pandering. The problem is the author knows nothing about the super heroes he tries to write about or their respective mythologies. So, he winds up alienating those hes trying to rope in. Some of the super hero traits he tries to correlate are a stretch for his ideas, others ard just plain wrong and i couldnt finish the book. Because the author destoys sny credibility he had midway through. If he's going to make up whatever he likes then how can I, as the reader, take any of his ideas seriously.
