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.

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.
