Although I am a profes...

Although I am a professional woman, I work in a big company with a highly-structured compensation framework. This means that Brzezinski's advice about negotiating for higher pay doesn't really apply to me since there's little, if any, room for negotiation in my organization. Nevertheless, Brzezinski's book was interesting and informative for me. Her statistics about the wage gap and the differences between how women and men value themselves in the workplace were particularly enlightening. These lessons are even useful at home, where women continue to take care of most of the domestic tasks. This is a worthwhile read for any profesional woman and would be interesting to men as well.

Knowing Your Value: Wo...

Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You're Worth by Mika Brzezinski; read by Coleen Marlo. This book is an interesting combination of memoir, sociological study and manifesto; Mika Brezezinski, co-host of Morning Joe, shares her struggles for equal pay, explores the data regarding pay discrepancies between men and women, and has successful women and men from a variety of fields offer their anecdotes and advice. The result is an engaging audiobook which gives you something to consider regarding your place in the workforce and the value others, but most importantly you, place on it. Mika Brzenzinski opens her book by revealing that, despite a successful career in TV news, she struggled to make ends meet each month and was grossly underpaid in many of the jobs she held. As she joined Joe Scarborough on the new show, Morning Joe, she found her niche and was energized by her work. However, the work was never ending as she spent many hours off camera trying to secure guests and preparing for the next day's show. She wasn't bothered by this extra work until she learned her co-host was earning 14 times her salary! It was then that she started to examine where she had gone wrong in the salary negotiation game throughout her career and she amassed advice and data on how to navigate a workforce with entrenched inequities between men and women. Below are a few lessons I learned from the author and her famous guests including Nora Ephron, Donnie Deutsch, Cheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) and Valerie Jarrett (Senior Advisor to President Obama): 1. Saying you have been "lucky" diminishes your value: Many women - and I count myself among them - will say they have been "lucky" when asked about success in their career. By attributing success to luck as opposed to your skills, you devalue you own worth. 2. Never be apologetic when asking for a raise: You must negotiate from a place of strength and a true understanding of your value to the organization or team. If you apologize for asking for a raise, you give your boss an "out" and they immediately question if you deserve the raise when you feel the need to apologize for the imposition. Also, you don't "need" the raise because of extraneous issues in your personal life (children or elderly parents to care for) but you deserve the raise because of the value you bring to the team. 3. Behave authentically: Although some of the pay discrepancies between men and women can be attributed to their different styles and approaches, you must still conduct yourself in a way in which you are comfortable and "fits" you. Adopting the brash, outspoken style of a male colleague may not be successful for you -especially if you are visibly uncomfortable. 4. Do your research: Understand how much people are paid in your role at your own company but also at competitors. You can't negotiate if you don't know how much the market will bear. Men are often very comfortable discussing salaries and therefore have the inside track on how much they should be paid. By being reticent to discuss money, women often hurt themselves in the salary department. 5. Hard work is not enough: Women often diligently assume tasks men would not and think this will be recognized but without self-promotion it goes unnoticed. Women may not be comfortable with self-promotion but it is necessary in order to get what you deserve. I have seen this first hand and have finally accepted that hard work and results won't always speak for themselves. This audiobook, at just over 4 hours, is the perfect length for this topic - it allowed for the inclusion of varied anecdotes from contributors and a smattering of research and data on pay inequity. A more in-depth examination of the research would have been tedious while the amount the author did include provided the right context for the points she made. I recommend listening to this (or reading the book) before you go into your boss's office to ask for your next raise!

This book is an eye opener. I never spent much time thinking about gender differences in the workplace, especially concerning asking for what you think you deserve. This book makes some excellent points as to how women must tread lightly to obtain equal compensation, or equal sized offices, for equal or even better work. Gave me some good ideas about strategies for pursuing my next raise!

I've always enjoyed watching Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe, and was happy to receive this audiobook as a part of Library Thing Early Reviewers. Brzezinski offers insight into a woman's fight in the working world, but could have also offered some advice to women as well. The book could have been more than what it was.

I hate to admit it, but I just could not listen to this one for very long. I find that if a person does not convey enough emotion in their voice or has a voice that annoys me in any way, then I just can't keep listening to the audio book. Unfortunately, this was one of them. One of my friends said that she found a ton of great information on these CDs though. So hopefully, you will find the value within it. I am thinking that I might try the actual book though. I really like the premise of it.
