How can women ask for — and actually get — the money, the job and 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, Brzezinski’s bestselling 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.
