Deadly Viper---deadly good times

It's everything people want in a book these days: small size, small chapters, cool graphics, easy, quick, creative, highly applicable.

The "Deadly Vipers" are the threats to our character as written if Kung Fu's Master Po were talking to you, Grasshopper.

I especially liked the chapter on The Bling Bling Assassin, which was about being less self indulgent and being more generous. One of the authors created The Junky Car Club when he decided to go with an older car so he could give more money away.

Other catchy titles are the Assassins of: the Headless Sprinting Chicken (pace of life) and Boom Chicka Wah Wah (sexy stuff).

I think it's one of the freshest, concisest, creativest books on character I've read in a long time. And it's biblical stuff that's written in a hip culturally relevant way. And a very cool support site with resources to help people go after character.

Its authors are Mike Foster who created XXXChurch and Jud Wilhite who pastors Central Christian Church in the Las Vegas area.
