From the rising star of MSNBC's Morning Joe and New York Times bestselling author comes a timely and powerful look at women's value in the workplace.

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 21, 2011 – Brzezinski knew that her role as cohost of the MSNBC show Morning Joe was integral to the show's success, and yet she was getting paid a fraction of what her male counterparts were. The network was certainly to blame, but so, she realized, was she; this was just the last in a long run of jobs where she'd seen a salary discrepancy, worked long hours to prove herself, got angry at herself for not earning more money and respect, and stormed off and got a new job—only to repeat the pattern. Wondering if other successful women also consistently undermined and undercut themselves, she interviews power women—Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Tina Brown, Nora Ephron, Suze Orman, and Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg. Brzezinski illustrates how women undervalue themselves in the workplace—excessive gratitude "just to have the opportunity," not negotiating their contracts, taking on extra work for which they're not being paid, and asking for raises in ways in which they're virtually certain to be turned down. While these insights are familiar, the celebrity angle provides much-needed perspective—if even the most successful women undervalue themselves out of a desire to be liked, as Joy Behar admits, then clearly the rest of us accepting 77 cents on our male colleagues' dollar are not alone. A thoughtful look at how women can quit getting in their own way.

Customer Reviews

A necessary read

This book contains tools that every woman needs upon entering the workplace. Thanks to all of the women who courageously shared their stories. A special thanks to Mika for seeing the need and having the balls to put it all out there!

Know your value

Excellent book! Not only good advice for women but men too. Not all men have learned the valuable lessons written in this book. Not all men are alpha males either. Sometimes men get ahead by just being men and then they fail. Understanding your value should be read by every college bound woman and man

Great read for any woman in Business

I love watching Mika each day on Morning Joe. Her writing is as clear as her fierce verbal dialogs on set. I enjoyed how relatable her circumstances are as a woman in business. Must read if you are soon entering the workforce or have been for many years. Thanks Mika for sharing your story.
