I don't always agree with Mika but her book provides great insight

Buy this book - for your mother, daughter, granddaughter, for anyone who wants to be a journalist. I watch Morning Joe and would get frustrated with him and Willie making fun of her, being referred to as Mommy, pill & drinking teasing. My 35 year old professor daughter got upset with this book because she is telling women that we can't really have it all. My daughter did not read this book. What Mika is trying to communicate is that some of us prefer to work and still love our kids. Yes, she is privileged with having a good husband but she is authentic and knows who she is. That alone is a good reason to read this book. This book even gave me a better opinion of Joe Scarbourough. Mika makes me think that there is hope for all of us, as women and as men, to follow our heart and just do the right thing.....

One half of "Moaning Joke!"

Ms Brzezinski's ghosted memoir is much like her on-screen personality. Shrill, condescending, unrewarding. On a daily basis, she's berated by a table of unevolved white men. She has no self-respect. A poor example for my daughter and nieces.

    The Munsters meet Mary Tyler Moore

    This boook is pretty good; however it can be dived into three sections:
    the first Mika's childhood can be described as a munster/adams family childhood (with deer in the bathtub, horses in for dinner, roadkill at dinner).
    The second part is Mikas "making it" phase; in this phase Mika describes her trying to make it in television by taking on any and every assignment from the ghetto to the parlours to the highest offices of power/privilege, in radio and with her male colleagues who she wants to make it as a wife.
    The third phase is Mikas Mary Tyler Moore phase, where her frenetic and frantic phase is over. This phase lasts to the end of the book. In this phase Mika redeems herself from a woman on the make and making it to a self respecting journalist/reporter. And this transformation is possible through the gentle guidance of "Morning Joe" and his crew. In this phase Mika redeems herself and her career. However, one can almost hear Mika salivating at the thought of taking over Morning Joes job and making him toast.

    Enlightening

    Enjoyed reading about Mika's career and family. Story was her work history and the choices she made during her career in television. Not the self-help book I thought it was.
