Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? In Knowing Your Value, the prequel to her new book Grow Your Value, bestselling author Mika Brzezinski takes an in-depth look at how women today achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth.
Prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Mika interviewed a number of prominent women across a wide range of industries on their experience moving up in their fields. Mika shares the surprising stories of such power players as presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, comedian Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, television personality Joy Behar, and many others. Mika also gets honest answers from the likes of Donny Deutsch, Jack Welch, Donald Trump, and others about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face and play into.
Knowing Your Value blends personal stories with the latest research on why many women don’t negotiate their compensation, why negotiating aggressively usually backfires, the real reasons why the gender wage gap persists, and what can be done about it.
Written in Mika’s brutally honest, funny, and self-deprecating style, Knowing Your Value is a vital book for professional women of all ages.

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.
