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.

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, 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 help uncover greater happiness, courage, balance, creativity, compassion, and purpose in our lives.

Each law has the potential to awaken us to our superpowers, and to change our lives and the world around us.
