Know Your Value

Know Your Value

Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth

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.

"Mika's book reminds us that women are great at asking and advocating for others, but not so great when it comes to advocating for ourselves.... I observed the success women had when they used Mika's tools and strategies. I heard them speaking with more positive self-talk and saying things that reflected a better understanding of the workplace.... Mika's core message is: Get clear about your value at your job. The tool of positive self-talk supports us in this effort. It helps us claim our strengths, accept our weaknesses, put things in perspective and sustain a more open and optimistic point of view."—Medium.com
