I was given a copy of Beyond Me My Selfie &I through the publisher and their parnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:
Beyond Me My Selfie and I reminds us that we live in a self obsessed world. A world where Selfies are a way of life and according to a Baylor University Study in 2014 sixty percent of College Students are addicted to their phones. Teresa Tomeo reminds her readers f the importance of putting our devices down and spending time away from our smart phones, tablets and computers and spend time appreciating the real world around us.
The author uses the term the Selfish Syndrome to describe how selfish self absorbed much of society has become. We are reminded too that shows that are my thing but wholesome have become what young girls watch, they look too Kim Kardishian as a role model but the way her life and exploits are portrayed are anything but wholesome.
The Sucess of the Low Budget Christian film War Room shows us that people are looking for a change though.
Teresa Tomeo goes on to report that image based platforms like Instagram, SnapChat and Selfie.im has become a leading force in the rise of plastic Surgery in those under the age of thirty.
I give Beyond Me, My Selfie and I five out of five stars.
