As the co-host of MSNBCâ€™s popular morning show Morning
Joe, Mika Brzezinski has established herself as a
leading political news journalist and beloved television
But success hasnâ€™t always come easy for Mika. Growing up the
only daughter of a former National Security Advisor, she
struggled to find an identity in a family of over-achievers.
She found her dream job early on and was hailed as the "It
Girl" of CBS, only to be fired just a few short years later.
After an unsuccessful stint as a stay-at-home mom, Mika went
back to the workplace with encouragement from her 8-year-old
daughter. She took a job that seemed a long-shot at best,
and against all odds achieved the greatest success of her
career. Now, in a time when many women are losing their jobs
or struggling to find the perfect balance between work and
home, Mika guides women of all ages to a place where they
can find peace and fulfillment in their lives.
All Things at Once is a motivational book aimed at
women, based on Mikaâ€™s own personal and professional
triumphs and failuresâ€”all of which have led her to her
current position as one of televisionâ€™s most outspoken and
respected journalists. Blending the personal with the
prescriptive, Brzezinskiâ€™s book will address the perpetual
question of "having it all" when it comes to work and
family; the importance of remaining equally humble in the
face of great success and seemingly devastating setbacks; as
well as the necessity of knowing and embracing our
limitations so that we may transcend them.
In the tradition of Gail Sheehyâ€™s classic Passages,
this illuminating book shows women how to reach their full
potential in all areas of life, and at every stage of their
journey. Readers will recognize their friends, their
mothers, their daughters, and themselves in this
refreshingly honest memoir.
