Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? In her bestselling 2011 manifesto Knowing Your Value-now updated 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 number of prominent women across a wide range of industries 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 others. She also gets honest answers from the likes of Donny Deutsch, Jack Welch, President Donald Trump, and others about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face - and play into.
Know Your Value blends new personal stories with updated 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.
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 business leaders; and adds an entirely new chapter about "knowing your value" in personal relationships.

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.”
