As the co-host of MSNBC's popular show Morning Foe, Mika Brzezinski has established herself as a leading political news journalist and beloved television personality. But success hasn't always come easy for Mika.
Growing up, she struggled to find an identity in a family of overachievers. She worked her way up the ranks of network television, reaching the very top of the ladder, only to be let go less than a year later. After an unsuccessful stint as a stay-at-home mom, Mika went back to the workplace with encouragement from her eight-year-old daughter. She started all over again with a beginner's job at age forty-a step back that proved to be a brilliant career move. Now, in a time when many women are losing their jobs or struggling to find the perfect balance between work and home, Mika guides women of all ages to a place where they can find lasting peace and fulfillment in their lives.
All Things At Once addresses the perpetual question of how to "have it all" when it comes to work and family; the importance of remaining equally humble in the face of great success and seemingly devastating setbacks; as well as the necessity of knowing and embracing our limitations so that we may transcend them. Brimming with insight and humor, it is a story for all women, at every stage of their journey, as they strive to reach their full potential.
