MEDIA ADVISORY, Nov. 4, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following media alert is submitted by The Maximus Group:

WHEN: 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011
WHERE: Online at www.livestream.com/ignatiuspress. RSVPs encouraged.
FORMAT: Tomeo will open with remarks about the book and why she wrote it, then will take questions from participants through the website, Facebook and Twitter.
ABOUT THE BOOK: In Extreme Makeover, Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends 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, and on TV. 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 their basic human dignity.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Teresa Tomeo uses the experience she gained as a secular-media print and broadcast journalist to be at the forefront of Catholic engagement with pop culture and the media. She hosts "Catholic Connection," a daily Catholic radio show produced by Ave Maria Radio and syndicated through the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network. She heads Teresa Tomeo Communications, a motivational and media-consulting firm. Tomeo also is a columnist for the Catholic Newspaper Our Sunday Visitor, and she is a frequent guest on Catholic and secular programs discussing culture, faith and the media. She hosts her own show on the Eternal Word Television Network called, "The Catholic View for Women." EXTREME MAKEOVER is her third book.
