Book Description

Nov. 1 1994 Windsor Selections
A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry; a shattering psychological game of cat and mouse; an accusation of sexual harassment that threatens to derail a brilliant career...this is the electrifying core of Michael Crichton's new novel, the first since Rising Sun.

At the center: Tom Sanders, an up-and-coming executive with DigiCom in Seattle, a man whose corporate future is certain. Until: after a closed-door meeting with his new boss -- a woman who was his lover ten years before, a woman who has been promoted to the position he expected to have -- he is accused of sexually harassing her. Now he finds himself trapped between what he knows to be true and what he knows others will assume to be the truth. And, as he uncovers an electronic trail into the company's secrets, he begins to grasp just how cynical and manipulative an abuse of truth has actually occurred...

Tackling one of the most divisive issues of our time, Disclosure compels us to see beyond our traditional responses. It is Michael Crichton at his best.

Michael Crichton's novels include The Terminal Man, Congo, Sphere, Jurassic Park, and Rising Sun.

Product Details


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.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book is very well written. At fisrt I wasn't sure if the book was going to be good or not because, I had a diferent idea of the kind of books that Crichton wrote. It turned out to be a very well written story. You can not tell until the end what is going to happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling June 14 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Michael Crichton is one of the best pure science fiction writers working today, at least in terms of his concepts. It's odd, then, that probably his most entertaining and intriguing book is closer to a straight-forward mystery. Nevertheless, this story of betrayal, backstabbing, and corporate culture is about as nail-biting as popular fiction gets. I normally find terms like "page-turner" annoying, but that's really the best way to describe a book like this. Immensely read-able, hugely entertaining, and completely enthralling. Read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent May 26 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a thrilling spectacle, delving into the complex mess that mess political correctness has created. It controversially challenges the notion of the dominant male and submissive female, and pointedly damns the unfair rules that have shackled men in the modern world. Fantastic work by Mr. Crichton!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best book I have read in a long time... May 19 2004
By Eric
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crichton at his Best March 31 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pageturner MC ever wrote..6 out of 5 March 3 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is up there with sphere. Sphere and Disclosure are for me the best MC books full of nail biting breathless suspense intertwined with state of the art technology, earthly and alien.If they had a 6th star slot I would have happily turned that yellow too. For me its 6 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great office thrill Nov. 20 2003
Format:Hardcover
I saw this movie and so I was never anxious to read this novel. One day it came on USA and I thought about giving it a read so I bought the book. I absolutely loved it! It was a page turner. The characters were so well thought out that I felt so in touch with them. The role reversal regarding the sexual harassment was quite interesting. I didn't realize that it could get that scandalous!
Louise Fernandez was phenomenal as his attorney and Meridith was Queen B&^*% herself!
I loved this book.
