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 bestselling 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.

A most read book for whoever wants to go to the next level and beyond.

This book will teach you how to be a superhero.

This isn't anything other that Chopra's usual song and dance with a vague hand waving trend chasing nod to the current popular craze. Avoid this. It does no favors to superheroes or their fans. It doesn't explain anything useful and would have been just as helpful had Chopra simply written "Give me your money." over and over to fill the page count. I expected it to be this bad, but felt I had to at least give it a look. I looked, that was enough. Chopra is Chopra. If Chopra is your thing, you will probably think this is very insightful. If Chopra is not your thing, this won't change your mind.

If you a want an interesting take on this, read Grant Morrison's "Super Gods" instead.
