As the co-host of MSNBC's popular morning show Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski has established herself as a leading political news journalist and beloved television personality. She daily interviews world leaders - Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain - and discusses the major events of the day with guests like Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, Chris Matthews, Maureen Dowd, and Tom Friedman.
But success hasn't always come easy for Mika, who 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 eight-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, 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 Mika's own personal and professional triumphs and failures - all of which have led her to her current position as one of television's most outspoken and respected journalists. Blending the personal with the prescriptive, Brzezinski'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 Sheehy'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 journeys. Listeners will recognize their friends, their mothers, their daughters, and themselves in this refreshingly honest memoir.

I think this will probably be a better read than a listen. The introduction and the last chapter are in a faster speed than Mika's normal voice. Also, you will hear when she turns the page. It is annoying and takes away from Mika's story. It is put together sloppily.
