Writing with vivid energy and insight, Teresa Tomeo has created the best kind of book about faith: rich in content, engaging to read and thoroughly practical in its implications. Tomeo knows the pressures and dishonesties facing women in modern American culture from firsthand experience, and she leads women to Jesus Christ with compelling personal testimonies and uncommon persuasive skill. For any woman who seeks the true foundation of her dignity, this is the book to read--and to share. ---Most Reverend Charles Chaput, Archbishop of Philadelphia
Teresa Tomeo is a passionate and persuasive apologist for the Catholic faith. In Extreme Makeover, she offers an earthy, candid, refreshing rejoinder to conventional feminist wisdom and builds a solid case for the liberating power of Catholic orthodoxy. ---Colleen Carroll Campbell, TV and radio host, author, The New Faithful

Teresa was a fallen away Catholic and on her journey back to her faith found that the Church's teachings were for all humnanity. She found that in Pope Paul VI's Encyclical, 'Humanae Vitae', was the forecast that women would be turned into objects. We know without reading her evidence that this has happened and is getting worse. There were many other predictions and all have come to pass. The book is a treasure trove and makes many more assertions, to which all of us can relate. There is not enough room in this review to write it all, but the personal testimonies section lends the final touch to the credibility of the book's content, if anyone feels the urge to disparage 'Extreme Makeover'. Teresa's writing style is straight forward and backed with facts and figures from indisputable sources. It is very easy to read and not too long. She makes the point that Catholics, especially those that have fallen away, should take Christ on board in a very special way to bring back hope into their lives. For those of us who are not Catholic I feel that there is hope also if we turn off the media and study her resources to have a better understanding of why our promiscuous lifestyles have not yet brought us happiness.
The reason everyone has forgotten that sex outside of marriage is wrong, violence is wrong, foul and explicit language is wrong, is because of what they see in the media. We need to realize that every time we use our televisions and use the Internet we are voting for the shows and advertisers represented there.
This book contains useful lists of appropriate web sites to get the real news instead of the mass media garbage with their hidden agendas.
The statistics on violence and sex content in the media, that this book quotes, are even worse than I would have thought, and I already knew it was bad.
I have personally boycotted all R rated movies. In my opinion there is no reason to watch anything R rated, no matter what age you are. I've also been appalled at some of the things portrayed on "regular" TV.
