More than a year and a half after the dramatic confrontation between Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, opinions remain sharply divided on which one was telling the truth, and on the episode's significance and meaning for American society. Opinion polls conducted on the first anniversary of the hearings showed that public sentiment in Thomas' favor had weakened, while Anita Hill has become a national celebrity, a heroine credited with putting sexual harassment on the national agenda and thus a symbol of the feminist and civil rights movements who is said to have inspired a political "year of the woman."

This book is pure slander, flung at Hill during the very dirty battle to discredit her and her charges. David Brock later admitted the sleazy nature of his work, admitted to intimidating another witness from testifying, and apologized to Hill for having written the book (I wouldn't trust Brock alone, but his efforts to intimidate others has been confirmed by those whom he intimidated and lied against).
Anyone reading this should read it only as part of that battle--not as "the definitive rebuttal of Hill's charges." Hill has been vindicated, decades too late, and after much suffering in her life, while Thomas and friends manipulated his way to the U.S. Supreme Court justice seat. How disgusting.
