Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You're Worth


The co-host of MSNBC's “Morning Joe” uses her efforts to overcome wage disparity as an illustration of the ways women undercut themselves in the business world by not believing in their value to an enterprise. Consulting with a range of people with experience in business—from Jack Welch to Suze Orman and Nora Ephron, among others—she dissects the reasons she failed and then ultimately succeeded in improving her salary. Although this is not a practical guide for women who can’t afford to give ultimatums when seeking a raise, the book provides insights worth noting. Coleen Marlo is a steady narrator who reflects the strength and confidence of the author. Her conversational style is easy to listen to. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
