Product Description

From School Library Journal

YA-Beautiful, bright, and talented Meredith Johnson arrives at Digital Communications Technology company to become the head of a division, a position that Tom Sanders thought was going to be his. Meredith, his former lover, invites him to her office after hours and attempts to seduce him. When he rejects her, she accuses him of sexual harassment. Tom hires Louise Fernandez to defend him and reverses the accusation to name Meredith as the aggressor. To this plot, Crichton adds computer-industry sabotage, corporate mergers, video-linkups, stock options, CD-ROM jargon, and even a trip on a virtual-reality simulator to help Tom save his reputation and career. YAs will love all the technology and the author's easy, readable style, but the graphic sex and obvious theme that harassment is power may make Disclosure a more suitable choice for public than for school libraries.

Disclosure deals with a man who is sexually harassed by a woman. Tom Sanders is the main character in this book, and right now at work he is dealing with a merger with another company, so when his former lover Merdith becomes to his company and who takes his job from him, he is then invited to her office for a meeting; but what happens is that she makes a move on him, but since he is married and not wanting to do it, he is then caught in a plan to bring him down because he wants to file a law suit against him. So when he brings in his lawyer; Ms. Fernandez, she then tells one side of the story, but when he calls one of his co-workers on a cell phone, he then realizes that he didnt end the call so he left the phone on and on the answering machine it recorded the WHOLE event. She then realizes this, and she tells the truth. So now Tom then calls his wife and tells her to leave town for a little bit because he does not want her to get into the mess he is in.
So now, he then counters her past employment; at the time all of the men who worked for her, they either resigned or where transfered away from her. So she has a past for doing sexual harassment. Now the book gets juicy toward the end and I have to say it is just plain exciting. This is a GREAT thriller! I have read it a couple of years ago, and still the book holds your interest toward the end. Great!

Michael Crichton is at his best with Disclosure. As usual, not afraid to take on controversial issues, Crichton explores the world of sexual harassment from the point of view of a harassed male. By looking at the issue from an uncommon viewpoint, he uncovers the underlying issues at stake. He reveals the emotions behind sexual harassment while not letting them interfere with the facts. Crichton wraps this well-researched information in a compelling story of corporate politics and intrigue. What is most amazing, however, is that he can write a book about so morbid a topic while keeping the story appealing. Though at points I felt offended by graphic descriptions, the story was far too engaging to put down.
Any fan of Michael Crichton will discover that this is one of his best novels; even someone new to Crichton will derive great pleasure from Disclosure's many twists and turns. Though not for the easily offended, his fast-paced, addictive style of writing is enjoyable and thoroughly satisfying. From cover to cover, Disclosure is an excellent novel.

....I'd opt for sleeping under a bridge rather than work for a living! Fortunately, most evil bosses are far too lazy to come up with a scheme as convoluted as the trap set for Crichton's protagonist.
This book did not age very well, as do most novels concerned with technology. It's hard to care about a portable CD player; it's kind of like reading a book with a souped-up 8-track tape deck as a plot device. ("Rising Sun" suffers in the same way, as it is concerned with ultra-advanced videotape technology). You get the feeling that on another day, Crichton would have centered his plot around a 5 1/4" floppy disk manufacturing plant.
However, the sadistic and petty nature of the Meredith, Blackburn, etc. is inspired. The trouble they go through to nail a political opponent is jaw-dropping. The histrionics and self-righteousness of remind me of "Mommie Dearest". In the end, you're glad that these are extreme exaggerated characters who earn a just come-uppance.
It's not "Great Expectations", but it's an entertaining read.

Format: Hardcover
This is Michael Crichtons second non techno thriller. What i mean by this, is that it doesnt have crazy biological stuff about it. But that doesnt mean he cant right a good novel about real life.
In this book we follow Tom Sanders, a well off family man that is a manager of a computer company. He is expecting a promotion, but the day he expects it, he finds that an old lover from ten years ago comes out of nowhere and gets the job he was planning on getting. While catching up with her later that night in her office, things happen. The next day Tom is accused of sexual Harassment. Tom is stuck in a corner, with his marriage, job, and life on the line, unless he does something about it.
Everyone is against Sanders, i mean, what man accuses a woman of sexual harassment. This is what Crichton is trying to put out there for us. It can happen, and it does/did happen.
This book is based on a true story that will leave you gasping every chapter. This book was great. I loved it. Don't pass this up because its not set in a dinosaur park. Michael Crichton can still right one hell of a thriller set in an everyday environment. Every page has a new meaning and makes you think differntly, all the way up to the incredibly shocking conclusion.

I honestly couldn't stop reading "Disclosure" once I started it -- I always wanted to know what would happen next; and unlike "Timeline" (which I also couldn't stop reading), it didn't read like a movie script. In "Disclosure", we get Crichton's usual background information regarding topics the reader may not be familiar with: in this case, sexual harrassment claims against women. With this book being written in 1993, we are also introduced to the concept and history of "e-mail" and "virtual reality". Although in this case I think Crichton's attempt to include new technology in the plot (as he often does in his works) seemed a little tacked-on rather than essential and fully integrated, it certainly doesn't get in the way. While reading "Disclosure", I kept finding myself pulling for Tom Sanders -- the main character -- as along the way he kept running into yet another snag. Because Sanders did not have a cookie-cutter, stereotypical sexual harrassment case, he had to fight even harder, as though he were guilty until proven innocent. I think it's that feeling of helplessness that made me keep wanting to know what would happen next -- and made it all that much more real to me. Perhaps that's because, as Crichton notes in the Afterword, this is based on a true story.
