Publisher's Summary

Mika Brzezinski's best-selling motivational guide - "a rallying cry for women to get the money they deserve" (TheAtlantic.com).

Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? What are the real reasons men get raises more often than women? How can women ask for - and actually get - the money, the job, the recognition they deserve? 

Prompted by her own experience as cohost of Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski asked a wide range of successful women to share the critical lessons they learned while moving up in their fields. Power players such as Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Harvard's Victoria Budson, comedian Susie Essman, and many more shared their surprising personal stories. They spoke candidly about why women are paid less and the pitfalls women face - and play into. 

Now expanded to address gender dynamics in the #MeToo era, Know Your Value blends compelling personal stories with the latest research on why many women don't negotiate their compensation, why negotiating aggressively usually backfires, and what can be done about it. 

For any woman who has ever wondered if her desire to be liked can be a liability (yes), if there is a way to reclaim her contribution after it's been co-opted in a meeting (yes), and if there are strategies men use to get ahead that women should too (yes!), Know Your Value provides vital advice to help women be their own best advocates.

Excellent Advice

Extremely important for women earlier in their careers, but equally sage for those of us in later stages of our careers, or in the "reinvention" process... a great pep talk!

Read If All You Want Is To Hear Mika Name Drop

This book is a complete waste of time unless you like listening to irrelevant stories and an overkill of name dropping. I expected to finish with, at the very least, a small toolbox of tips and ideas but all I got was Mika's story, without how she negotiated her position and salary. Very disappointing.
