A revised and expanded edition of Mika Brzezinski's bestselling motivational title that helps women advocate for themselves - featuring updated statistics, fresh interviews, and powerful new material for the #metoo era.

Why are women so often overlooked and underpaid? Prompted by her own experience as co-host of Morning Joe, Mika interviews a wide range of women on their experiences moving up in their fields. Mika shares the surprising stories of power players such as Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg, Senator Elizabeth Warren, media mogul and author Tina Brown, television personality Joy Behar, and many more. She also gets honest answers from the likes of Donny Deutsch, Jack Welch, and other thought leaders about why women are paid less, and what pitfalls women face--and play into.

In this revised edition, Mika updates the book throughout, adds new interviews with high-profile women (former Obama advisor Melody Barnes, New York Times editor on gender issues Susan Chira, BBC presenter Katty Kay, Blue Cross exec Jeanie Heffernan, Harvard's Victoria Budson, executive coach Liz Bentley), and adds new commentary about gender bias in the age of Trump. Know Your Value blends personal stories with the latest 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.

Written in Mika's brutally honest, funny, and self-deprecating style, Know Your Value is a vital book for professional women of all ages.
