It's no secret that women have long been overlooked and
under-compensated, and while great strides have made in
recent decades, the value placed on women versus their male
counterparts is still consistently unbalanced. In Knowing
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 interviews a number of prominent women across a wide
range of industries on their experience moving up in their
fields. Mika reveals how these women, including such
impresarios as White House star Valerie Jarrett, comedian
Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook's
Sheryl Sandberg, and broadcaster Joy Behar, navigated the
inevitable roadblocks that are unique to women. Mika also
uncovers what men think about the approach women take in the
workplace, getting honest answers from Donnie Deutsch, Jack
Welch, Donald Trump, and others about why women are paid
less, and what pitfalls women face--and play into--as they
try to get their worth at work. Knowing Your Value blends
these personal stories and opinions with the latest research
and polling on issues such as equal pay, women in the
boardroom, and access to start-up capital.
Written in Mika's brutally honest, funny, and
self-deprecating style, Knowing Your Value is a vital book
for professional women of all ages.
