Co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and best-selling author Mika Brzezinski seems to have it all – celebrity, a successful career, marriage and children. Yet even as she worked to empower other women through her books and seminars, Brzezinski questioned her own worth as a wife and mother. Here, she details her journey to find the same value in her personal life that she achieved professionally. As a mother, Brzezinski confesses to feeling guilty. She says other successful women are unwilling to address this topic, though thousands of books and articles on the issue beg to differ. Readers may find her problems – reconciling success, fame and salary with neglecting her family – enviable. And some may have difficulty relating to the experiences of the high-level working women Brzezinski depicts as her inner circle, including Olympian Bonny Warner Simi, former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers and cosmetic queen Bobbi Brown. Nonetheless, getAbstract believes women facing professional challenges will enjoy getting to know them and will find value in Brzezinski’s account of her quest for inner harmony.
