Description:

As the co-host of MSNBC’s popular morning show Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski has established herself a leading political news journalist and beloved television personality. She daily interviews world leaders—Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain—and discusses the major events of the day with  guests like Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, Chris Matthews, Maureen Dowd, and Tom Friedman.

But success hasn’t always come easy for Mika. Growing up the only daughter of a former National Security Advisor, she struggled to find an identity in a family of over-achievers. She found her dream job early on and was hailed as the “It Girl” of CBS, only to be fired just a few short years later. After an unsuccessful stint as a stay-at-home mom, Mika went back to the workplace with encouragement from her 8-year-old daughter. She took a job that seemed a long-shot at best, and against all odds achieved the greatest success of her career. 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 peace and fulfillment in their lives.

All Things at Once is a motivational book aimed at women, based on Mika’s own personal and professional triumphs and failures—all of which have led her to her current position as one of television’s most outspoken and respected journalists. Blending the personal with the prescriptive, Brzezinski’s book will address the perpetual question of “having 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.

In the tradition of Gail Sheehy’s classic Passages, this illuminating book shows women how to reach their full potential in all areas of life, and at every stage of their journey. Readers will recognize their friends, their mothers, their daughters, and themselves in this refreshingly honest memoir.

1Don't forget to have children! And employ a slew of hired help!  Jan 23, 2010
By reader 2227 "coniferite"
Mika Brzezinski has promoted this book, by saying that she has advice that she wants to give to young, professional women. One piece of advice, that Ms. Brzezinski likes to trumpet to younger women, is: "Don't forget to have children!"
Mika writes, on page 4, "One of the first things I talk about, when I speak with young women about jump-starting their career - even if they don't ask [is], 'Don't forget to have children...'"
Mika's publisher's blurb blares, "She shares a refreshingly pragmatic approach for the professional woman: don't wait to have children..."
However, when Ms. Brzezinski has her two children in her 20's, as Mika promotes and expounds in her book, Ms. Brzezinski is also, privileged enough, to be able to hire a slew of nannies and back-up. Mika speaks of a helpful husband, and she is able to have a staff of babysitters and housekeepers, but nonetheless, Mika can't seem to manage. Although, Mika employs a range of domestic help, Mika still bemoans continually, about how depleted and overburdened she is.
It turns out, that raising children, can be quite exhausting. Who knew that children had so many needs? Mika berates herself, for not having employed more caretakers sooner to watch her children, and doesn't want the reader to make the same mistake. Mika's message: Don't forget the fleet of hirelings and surrogates!
But, even with assistance and support, Mika distracted, falls down her stairs as she is holding her second daughter. While in the emergency room, there is the fear that the baby might be paralyzed in some way. Luckily, that was not the case, and the fracture to the little girl's femur bone is repaired. Mika and her husband then decide to hire even more household help, to "have the kids staffed" with no interruptions. (page 112)
Mika writes, "We set it up so the house could run efficiently in my absence - and even in my presence." (page 114)
This is Mika's big 'insight' about mothering, that Mika advocates so zealously, and Mika says everyone else should do it, too. Mika tells the reader to "get staffed" as soon as possible, and don't put it off!
Remember, that those babies, toddlers and children, should always be: "Staffed!"
Ms. Brzezinski, is able to employ an array of hired help, to handle all the 'things' in her life, but even so, Mika laments repeatedly, about how drained and fatigued she is. Given that Ms. Brzezinski is dependent upon, a plethora of round-the-clock childcare and custodial stand-ins, it would seem that Mika's counsel would be, to think carefully and arduously before taking on the demands of having a baby, or having another one; not to rush into it or take on the responsibility before one is ready. Mika's "advice on motherhood" also seems a bit insulting, to all the working moms, working dads, the stay-at-home parent, and all those who raise children without a fraction of the help that Mika is fortunate enough to have.

Mika Brzezinski is on a morning show with a co-host, whose intelligence, even her own father calls, "stunningly superficial." If Mika's father feels this way about their program, others can't be blamed for thinking, the exact same thing.
Mika has absolutely no compunction, no problem at all, about being the one to encourage and provoke Joe Scarborough, to go on yet another one of his predictable, knee-jerk, redundant, hypocritical tirades; adoring gazes by Mika included. No matter that they can take quotes or anecdotes out of context, just so long as Joe and Mika can fuel their pompous, repetitive, empty schtick. For Mika and Joe, it is always the same incessant, rehashing, of their tiresome and inane rants. Joe and Mika, with their stale, perniciously pointless, co-charades, just seem: phony, deficient and tedious.

It is pitiful and demoralizing, that these 'stunningly disingenuous,' overpaid, self-righteous, hollow bloviators, ended up bungling their way to having, all this misused, 'alleged news' air time.
What a sad, noxious, low standard to set so early in the day.
There is no doubt that Mika's and Joe's main obsessions, have always been their own artificial, egotistical, hypocritical, caterwauling histrionics.
Not surprisingly, Mika sounds the same way in this book.

Speaking of advice, whether you've remembered or not, to procreate, adopt, &/or, foster children yourself, yet, skip this annoying book, save your money, and put the funds into your babysitter account instead.

1Delusional  Mar 01, 2010
By Lisa
I got this from the library and finished it in less than three hours. Wow. Driven by what seems to be an obsessive need to be in the spotlight, Brzezinski neglects her children for a life that keeps her--rather than them--the center of attention. She freely admits that she finds true parenting to be a chore and would much rather be a "fun" parent. Being a parent means accepting that some days are nothing but temper fits and tears, whilst others are hugs and fun, and most are in the middle, with a little of both to keep things interesting. Brzezinski believes the proper way to raise her children is to take out loans and foist her daughters upon nannies and sitters so she herself has as little interaction with them as possible. At first I found this incredible; however, by the end of the book, it became quite clear that those kids may well be better off with people who actually want to be around them. If her horrific recounting of what happened when she believed her daughter to be paralyzed couldn't make her see the forest for the trees, well, perhaps it's best she sticks to her book tours and morning show and leaves her children in much more capable hands.

1Hire an armada of childcare, as soon as you can. Take all the credit yourself, then write a book about your "mothering" advice.  Oct 03, 2010
By Christine A.
I read this book because I wanted to see what a co-anchor, on one of the three cable news stations had to say. The women and men who `host' these shows, funnel and filter the news for America, so their positions can have an undue influence on the American political pulse. It has always struck me as odd, that Mika can stridently and pompously, repeatedly descend on anyone who dares consume sugar. Yet, Ms. Brzezinski, can just as easily $hill for $tarbuck'$ $weetened drink$.

What advice could Ms. Brzezinski have, about "balancing career and parenting young children?" Mika, with frequent verve, repeatedly tells professional women, that they should have their children in their 20's, just as Mika did. On the other hand, Ms. Brzezinski employs an armada of nannies and babysitters, to outsource the care of her children, which she glosses over. What Mika is trying to package as parental advice, seems empty when she admits how little she sees her own children. This often makes Mika appear clueless, in a Marie-Antoinette sort of way. One is left baffled, from what Mika espouses, and then how she leads her own life.

In Mika's own words: "It meant we'd need virtually full-time babysitting help." (p 79) "I could have used much more help, but we could barely afford just the one sitter." (p 96) "He [her husband] took out loans to hire another nanny so I could get the rest I needed, and all the support we needed around the house. We hired a night person and a day person." (p 112) "We set it up so the house could run efficiently in my absence - and even in my presence." (p 114) "She [Mika's daughter] was about nine, and she was making an appointment on her cell phone because she didn't want to wait for Mommy to get around to scheduling a cleaning. And she had to tell me how to find the dentist's office, too, because I'd never been there before." (p 128) "I'd miss my daughters' birthdays from time to time, but then I'd make it up to them by throwing a party a couple of months later...As I write this, I'm missing Carlie's elementary school graduation, so there's a constant tug and pull between what I need to be doing at work and what I'd like to be doing at home." (p 180) "Once, Emilie was performing in a circus at school. She was in third grade, and was terrifically excited...All day long, I kept thinking about this damn circus." (p 181) "Unfortunately, the role of wife and mother didn't even come close to defining me, as my family quickly learned... I could use the washing machine without too much trouble, but once I took the clothes out of the dryer they were on their own." (p 191) "As soon as I had to be the taskmaster, the coordinator of all things domestic, it took some spirit out of it. It made it more like a job." (p 192)

Mika is always tired and finds the responsibilities of being a parent draining. All through the book, she complains about how tired she is: "tremendous exhaustion" (p 7) "constantly nauseous, nervous, exhausted, frayed, fried" (p 66) "I could even sneak in a nap" (p 75) "I was by now constantly and relentlessly tired" (p 78) "I was bone-tired" (p 90) "I couldn't sleep" (p 95) "a full night's sleep - a cherished luxury" (p 96) "instead of this overwhelmed, overextended" (pg 96) "a nap, I knew, like I should have been" (p 97) "get the rest I needed, and all the support we needed around the house" (p 112) "being so limited on my sleep" (p 113) "when you don't sleep all night, you can't think" (p 113) "sleepless night, and then another" (p 113) "Because I needed my sleep" (p 114) "I let our sitters stay with our children all day if I felt I needed to catch up on my sleep." (p 114) "haggard and worn..bone-tired" (p 117) "being able to sleep" (p 127) "much needed rest and pampering" (p 133) "I was so tired" (p 139) "beaten down" (p 144) "Once I cooked a Thanksgiving turkey with the plastic bag filled with gizards still inside. I was quite capable of managing our busy household, but when it came to actually rolling up my sleeves and doing the work, that was a different story." (p 191) "I needed my sleep" (p 227) "too little sleep" (p 229)

Mika seems disingenuous when she describes the needs of those around her, as she tends to her own: "I escalated the let's take care of Mika program. I went out and bought expensive clothes...I became my own round-the-clock stimulus project. If it's true that you have to spend money to make money, then I would be living proof. I worked on my `makeover' for months, until I was so pleased with the results that I asked the folks at CBS to take a new picture of me." (p 128)

It is quite surprising then, when Mika does not know the name of the Exec. Prod. at CBS' 60 Minutes, Jeff Fager, while she was there: "Naturally, it got around that I didn't know who Jeff Fager was. It also got around that I was meeting with him." (p 162) She had asked three people in her office who Mr. Fager was, and either they didn't give Mika enough attention to understand her question, (Mika believes that she said it more like 'Jefaeger,') or they were playing dumb, but the fourth person's response was, "'Who is he?' my friend said incredulous[ly]. 'Ummm, he's only the executive producer of 60 Minutes.'" (p 162) After Ms. Brzezinski has told us, again, and again, and again, how important her career is, it is not hard to comprehend, why her co-workers were taken aback and 'incredulous,' when they heard that Mika had no idea - who Jeff Fager was...

If Ms. Brzezinski is an example of the `analyst' America has at the gate of reporting, it is no wonder that there is so much confusion and acrimony created by the media. Mika sounds as muddled handling the news, as she does in this book.

Reading this autobiography, with all of Mika's inconsistencies and hypocrisies, it is even harder to take Mika and Morning Joke the duplicitous blowviator seriously. It is a sad commentary on the press, that such a pretentious and phony duo are at the helm of a 'news' program. Mr. Scarborough joked, on air, about the death of a young, female intern found in his Congressional office, and then banned a journalist who mentioned it in a tweet, from appearing on MSNBC. (google: Scarborough intern). Sidekick Mike Barnicle has been fired for plagiarism and fabrication of false quotes (google: Barnicle plagiarism). How unfortunate, and irritatingly confounding, that these sanctimonious, vacuous, vapid 'anchors', have any kind of show, let alone, at a premium time slot.

After reading Ms. Brzezinski's book, one is even more 'incredulous' about that fact.

1A Cautionary Tale--How Not to Have It All  Nov 23, 2010
By olderandwiser
I read this book and thought Mika was wise to make marriage and childbearing a priority. But then it became the usual drivel. Mika may have borne two children, but she's been too busy with her ego and her career to rear them. She appears to have adjusted totally to this sad situation, as revealed by the family Christmas cards--one shows her daughter with a broken femur in a hospital bed, with a balloon caption claiming this is what happens when baby is naughty. Actually, it was Mom who was naughty--she didn't get enough sleep and tumbled down the stairs, managing to fall on her daughter twice. Then there's the one showing her husband, two daughters, and a stand-in woman, which asks the recipient to say hello to Mommy if you see her. The final example shows Mika, hubby, daughters, and a baby (not their own). Some people thought she'd had a third child, not realizing it was a "joke" card. Let's hope her daughters, when they grow up, have a good laugh on the way to their shrinks. This book provides a graphic illustration of how to have "All Things at Once" without really having the substance of any of them. How sad.

4Memoir For Everyone  Jan 03, 2010
By Meijer Bjorn "Author"
I enjoy reading about others lives, even when I know very little about them. That was the case when I decided to read Mika Brzezinski's, "All Things At Once." I became a little worried when the marketing of the book was focused on career women. I have the wrong plumbing and I am perfectly satisfied working with my wife in her in-home childcare business. With that said, I went into this book wanting to provide insight relevant to anyone interested in Mika's book.

"All Things at Once," by Mika Brzezinkski reads much like how she describes her career. It starts out with the intention of doing great things. The focus of the book is pretty rough with signs of promise. There are parts that are good and others that fall short. By the last third of the book, the memoir comes into its own. It pulled me in and began to tug on me in an emotional way.

The beginning of the book takes a glimpse at Mika's childhood. It is interspersed with mentions of her career. Mika's father was the national security adviser during the Carter administration. Her family in all aspects were country folk that enjoyed hunting and had a lifestyle far removed from the Washington socialite scene they had become apart of. The memoir glances over this information, which if given more detail would have been excellent reading.

Mika goes on to highlight the start of her career. She discusses her choices that created a hectic and stressful life. All this leads to an accident that made Mika take a closer look at her decisions. This becomes a vital turning point in her life. Mika's family dynamic is different from the typical two working parent household. The demands put on Mika and her husband, because of their careers, creates an environment that may shock some reading the book.

As Mika details her first move to MSNBC, the focus of the book becomes clearer and the story begins to hold my interest better. Her experiences in the latter part of her career are detailed in a way that was very interesting and moving.

As described in the book, Mika stretches herself quite thin. With this in mind she put together a good memoir. If Mika had more time to dedicate to her book, it could have been great. Overall, I enjoyed the honest and telling look into her life. I would recommend it to anyone, not just career minded women.
