Format: Paperback
This book is the most comprehensive and intelligent analysis of its kind I have had the pleasure to come accross. The author presents the nine dominant forms of the media, explains their significance, and provides an easy method of using the media without having the media use you. The insights of the book are powerful, and the statistics are stunning. You will be amazed.

Format: Paperback
PRO: This book articulates what many of us suspect but don't have the time or energy to fully explore: too much media ruins lives. Her strongest chapter "Are you strong enough?" discusses how our highest human faculty is the mind and it's reasoning capability. It basically discusses how reflection is a lost art. We try so hard to be distracted and entertained; the silence that breeds unity with God is lost. We as a nation have become content with letting the media THINK for us since we are too busy with everything else in the world. This book has some outstanding statistics as well. It is very well researched and documented. I also appreciated the proactive steps it includes in the back of each chapter on tangible ways people can moderate the use of media in their lives. Finally, this book is balanced in that Tomeo isn't trying to tell us to throw the TVs out the window. Good can come from technology and she highlights this point esp. with good quotes from the late Pope JP2.

CON: I wish she would have delved more into cell phone usage and the impact that's having on culture. It's like the huge elephant in the room that wasn't really addressed much.

I also think the music section left a little something to be desired. We all know rap is harmful. But she didn't do much to address other genres of music that can stray into sad or inappropriate messages like most R&B and some alternative music as well.

Finally, I think this book limited its universality by leaning too heavily on the Catholic perspective. I am a strong, practicing Catholic myself, but I could see the shortcomings in how other religious perspectives weren't really validated. She threw out the "Christian" term regarding music and performers but even that wasn't consistent.

Format: Paperback
Parents: would you allow your child to learn a foreign language you don't understand, make friends with strangers who speak that language, and invite them into your home to fraternize with your children unsupervised? "No way", you say, but let's be honest. Isn't that what so many teens are doing when they listed to Ipods, download videos onto their cell phones, chat on MySpace, or play video games? Children are generally more techno-literate than their parents and as technology gets more and more complex and personalized, it becomes harder to protect our children from the noise of popular culture as it seeps into our lives. We need a handbook to help us fend off this thief of our children's innocence. Teresa Tomeo, veteran TV and radio broadcaster, and host of the popular Catholic Connection radio show on Ave Maria Radio, has done just that in her book "Noise".
"Noise" answers the question so often voiced by the Baby Boomers, "What happened to TV?" When I was growing up, "Andy Griffith" and "I Love Lucy" were shows watched by the entire family, and now sexually charged shows like, "Desperate Housewives" is the most popular with young girls aged 9-12. Kids spend as much time hooked up to some form of media as they do in school these days, so we'd better educate ourselves about what's going on, before they're lost to us, and the Faith.
This book, which is as engrossing as it is terrifying, begins with a thorough explanation of the origins of the problem of immorality in media, and how Teresa, who worked for over 20 years in secular media, came to see the problem for what it is. The latter part of the book is divided into sections by type of media, with chapters dedicated to TV, radio, computer games, internet, music, and advertising, and explains the immoral influence in each.

Format: Paperback
Teresa's insight into the media blitz cannot be understated. Her experience behind the scenes at a Detroit news station can attest to this.
The simple test that I tell people to to become more aware of the day to day noise that surrounds them is to do is try shutting everything off for one day. Any Sunday would be nice. See if time crawls by. See if you feel ancy. See how many times you reach for the remote, phone, computer..... See how much you accomplish. See how much better you feel at the end of the day. If you can go a month or six months see things in movies or particular stations that you never noticed before. Things that will repulse you where as before you ignored.

This book will open the eyes of those saturated by exposure to the media. (If they are willing to open them).
Many things in life start out for good and for good purposes, but sadly, evil enters.
I recommend this book to enlighten people as to how they are manipulated by the media. There is a life outside TV, radio, etc. My husband and I removed our TV twenty years ago. We don't miss it at all, expecially with what we hear is considered "entertainment" these days.
Parents, guard your children, direct them beyond their technology filled worlds.
