“Teresa Tomeo felt the cultural pulse and has detected a serious heart ailment -- narcissistic self-love. From one symptom (overindulging in taking selfies), she proceeds to identify many others: obsessive-compulsive internet and media addictions, isolation from actual human contact, loss of God and a resultant loss of meaning. Yet Tomeo is also wise enough to suggest healing prescriptions. Read this book and discover how you, too, can love God and other people in order to get out of a profoundly self-centered downward spiral and break free to authentic joy and peace.” — Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., biblical scholar, EWTN host, and president and founder of Ignatius Productions
“Teresa Tomeo takes a clear picture of our technologically obsessed, self-absorbed culture. She presents a compelling case: The closer you are to yourself, the farther you are from God. Me, My Selfie and I gives a true picture of reality.” — Dr. Ray Guarendi, clinical psychologist, nationally syndicated talk radio and television host and author of Discipline That Lasts a Lifetime
"Teresa Tomeo skillfully lays out one of the most powerful yet counterintuitive truths of the human experience: that focusing on yourself won't lead to happiness. Our self-obsessed culture needs this message now more than ever." — Jennifer Fulwiler, host of “The Jennifer Fulwiler Show” (SiriusXM) and bestselling author of Something Other Than God
“As the wand of Narcissis (a.k.a.the selfie stick) waves across our world, spreading egotism and selfishness, Teresa Tomeo gives us a clear picture of what the 'selfie age' is doing to our society. Beyond Me, My Selfie and I offers us a better way of living and growing closer to Christ. Do yourself a favor: put down your smart phone and pick up this book. You'll be surprised what you have been missing!” — Michele Faehnle, co-author of Divine Mercy for Moms
“It is difficult to imagine that the culture of narcissism has moved to hyper-narcissism. Yet this seems to be the interior and virtual world in which so many young people live – with new generations clamoring to join them. . . . Not content to leave the culture, and its vulnerable youth, to the darkness of egocentric isolation, Tomeo uses scripture, philosophy, common sense, and prayer to reintroduce light and love into the emptiness and alienation of our time. She incites us to move beyond the reduction of ourselves to mere images and facades pandering for attention – and to follow the call and grace of Christ to rise to love and faith — and so to embrace our true nature, dignity, and destiny.” — Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., author of Finding True Happiness and president of the Magis Center of Reason and Faith
“When I heard Teresa Tomeo was writing a book about me, I was thrilled! Then I realized it wasn’t written just about me. It’s written about all of us who live in this ‘me’ centered world. As always, Teresa helps us be less self-centered and more God-centered. I may even take a selfie with this book to share it with others! — Lino Rulli, The Catholic Guy on SiriusXM Satellite Radio
“In Beyond Me, My Selfie, and I, Teresa Tomeo has once again shown herself to be one of the most insightful, readable media critics in our society today. In this brilliant analysis of the “selfie” phenomenon, she exposes “me, myself, and I” as the false path to happiness that it really is, and asks her readers thought-provoking questions that will help them find the road to true joy. Everyone with a smart phone should read this book – and share it with their friends!” — Sue Ellen Browder, author of Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement
