A professional TV and radio journalist, Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends in order to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Packed with not only persuasive statistics but also powerful personal testimonies, Extreme Makeover shows that it is not the slogans of the sexual revolution and the women’s liberation movement that free and dignify women, but the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church.

Wow! What a powerful and inspiring book. I could not recommend this book more highly to all women. Reaffirming that we as women are made for more, it uncovers the truth of our identity, dignity and “feminine genius”. This book as a great way of breaking through the lies of popular culture and presenting the truth, the profound and infallible teachings of the Catholic Church.

She writes in an easy to read manner, but does not shy away from the hard hitting truth! She includes her own personal journey of faith, as well as several other testimonies of strong Catholic women today.
