Know Your Value

Audiobook
A revised and expanded edition of Mika Brzezinski's bestselling motivational title that helps women advocate for themselves - featuring updated statistics, fresh interviews, and powerful new material for the #metoo era.Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? In her bestselling 2011 manifesto Knowing Your Value-now updated, renamed, and expanded with all-new material—Mika takes an in-depth look at how women can achieve their deserved recognition and financial worth.Prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Mika interviews a wide range of women on their experiences moving up in their fields. Mika shares the surprising stories of power players such as presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, comedian Susie Essman, writer and director Nora Ephron, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, television personality Joy Behar, and many more. She also gets honest answers from the likes of Donny Deutsch, Jack Welch, and other thought leaders about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face—and play into. In the new 2018 edition, Mika updates the book throughout with current statistics about women's compensation rates and leadership roles; she adds new interviews with high-profile women (former Obama advisor Melody Barnes, NYT editor on gender issues Susan Chira, BBC presenter Katty Kay, Blue Cross exec Jeanie Heffernan, Harvard's Victoria Budson, Executive Coach Liz Bentley); and adds new chapters about sexual harassment and "knowing your value" in personal relationships. Know Your Value blends personal stories with the latest cutting-edge 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, Know Your Value is a vital book for professional women of all ages
