Background

Rita Papazian of The News-Times commented that, “Brzezinski cited the roller-coaster model of her own career to advise people in her audience who may be out of work. She said in today's economy, they couldn't expect to return to the positions they may have had or for there to be open job opportunities because one does not know, as in her own case, where they may lead. "It's a reset," she said, describing the current status of the unemployed looking for work. She described the experience of losing her job as "cleansing and liberating in ways you never knew." She stressed the importance of All Things at Once by noting that being a wife and mother bring texture to her career as a broadcast journalist. "It's all inter-related."

Nanette Morges of The Hour commented that, “The inspiration for the book came from Brzezinski's interaction with young women just starting their careers. She found that when she suggested that they not wait until their careers are established to have children, "Their eyes popped out as if they were hearing this for the first time," she said. "I thought either I am getting old or I have a lot to offer."

Reviews

James Srodes, of the Washington Times, stated that, "The Mika Brzezinski portrayed by Mika Brzezinski in this memoir is a person almost totally consumed by ambition, but with a startling naivete about the real world of work. That personality is also layered with numerous sub-strata, including an incredible sense of entitlement, deep-rooted insecurity and compulsive behavior patterns that have led to poor career choices along the way."

Dani Klein Modisett, of Momlogic.com, stated that, "In All Things at Once, caring for Mika's two daughters takes a deliberate and calculated backseat to massaging her image and rise to fame as a TV personality. As I turned the pages of this slim volume with increasing rage, I had to ask myself two questions: Why am I still reading this, and what am I so mad about?"

New York Post stated that, "Brzezinski writes about her childhood as Amy Carter’s playpal and her current struggle to juggle husband, kids and career. No wonder she rarely puts down her BlackBerry.

Leisl Schillinger, of the New York Times, stated that the book, "follows Brzezinski through her professional chutes and ladders — the freelance gigs, the graveyard shifts, the drama (covering 9/11), the dreariness (puff segments on shoes) — the only constant being the precariousness of her employment.
