Popular radio host Teresa Tomeo knows from experience that the self-image of American women is being distorted by pop culture. With its emphasis on youth, physical beauty, and sexuality, the secular media is encouraging women--and girls--to see themselves primarily as sex objects.
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.
So what are women steeped in the Hollywood and Cosmo girl version of reality to do? Undergo Tomeo's Extreme Makeover. With the help of this book, they can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.
Ever struggled to find the right words to talk about the threat of pornography with your kids? Too many of us avoid the subject, depending on simple technology filters to protect them.

Every Parent’s Battle: A Family Guide to Resisting Pornography not only exposes the frightening prevalence of pornography in our sex-obsessed culture, it equips parents with concrete and tested strategies to educate their kids about intimacy, human dignity, and sexuality as God intended it to be.
“Dan Spencer’s new book … provides Catholic and other parents with tools and strategies that are aimed at prevention, rather than recovery, in the spiritual battle for the virtue of chastity….

NAUMANN, ARCHDIOCESE OF KANSAS CITY, KANSAS
“The Roman Empire was a pornographic society - with all the misery that implies - but our own society is far worse. History shows that this problem can be overcome in only one way: the way of the Christian family. Dan Spencer shows us, in practical terms, what that means for us as parents. Reading this book is not just a good idea. It’s a duty.”— MIKE AQUILINA, EWTN HOST AND AUTHOR OF SEVEN REVOLUTIONS: HOW CHRISTIANITY CHANGED THE WORLD AND CAN CHANGE IT AGAIN
