Know Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth (Revised)

By Mika Brzezinski
The bestselling motivational guide that TheAtlantic.com calls "a rallying cry for women to get the money they deserve."

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.



    REVIEW QUOTES
"An inspiring evaluation of the potential women have to create fully productive lives at work and at home."--Kirkus Reviews
"Opportunity has seasoned Brzezinski but not hardened her, and having found her venue and voice with Morning Joe, she shares a refreshingly pragmatic approach for the professional woman: don't wait to have children and don't let your job treat you like a bad boyfriend." --Publishers Weekly

TheAtlantic.com "A rallying cry for women to get the money they deserve." Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook "A lot of getting ahead in the workplace has to do with being willing to raise your hand...If we as women don't raise our hands in the workplace, we're not going to get the same opportunities men do. Because men keep their hands up." Nora Ephron, writer and director "The words favored nations--that's an expression all women should know. In other words, you always want to be paid no less than what anyone else is being paid." Arianna Huffington, president and editor in chief of the Huffington Post Media Group "Just look around and you'll see plenty of evidence that asking for what we want results not in the realization of our own worst fears but in getting what we want."
