New York, NY: Weinstein Books, 2010. First edition [stated]. First printing [stated]. Hardcover. xvii, , 232 pages. Illustrations. Signed by author and by Joe Scarborough. All Things at Once is a memoir from American journalist Mika Brzezinski published by Weinstein Books in January 2010. The publisher describes it as "a candid and inspiring motivational book that will help women of all ages confront the unique professional and personal challenges they face in the key moments of their lives. 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."

New York: Rodale, 2006. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xv, , 239,  pages. Illustrations. Author signed WETA bookplate on fep. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Very slightly cocked. In this candid, intimate account, an award-winning 20-year veteran NPR correspondent takes readers behind the scenes of the major events of our time, letting us see what it's really like gathering the news on the front lines. As a radio journalist whose work appears regularly on Morning Edition and All Things Considered, John F. Burnett has reported from the Branch Davidian standoff and the Kosovo conflict. He has covered the drug wars in Central America; been embedded in a Marine Division in Iraq; and weathered Hurricane Katrina, breaking news hourly on the conditions in New Orleans. And he was one of NPR's lead reporters on 9/11 and its aftermath. But no matter how much time Burnett has on the air to report his stories—and how expertly he has done so—there are always valuable details that aren't mentioned. Now he fills in those rich tidbits, letting us witness the parts of the stories that remained off the air. In Uncivilized Beasts and Shameless Hellions, Burnett exposes the hilarious moments, bizarre encounters, dangerous highways, insufferable colleagues, and unsung heroes he's known through his adventures as an NPR reporter. The result is a revealing and personal account that will fascinate not only NPR listeners but also anyone interested in the state of our world today and how the media covers it.
