"A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry; a shattering game of cat and mouse; an accusation of sexual harassment that threatens to derail a brilliant career ... this is the electrifying core of Michael Chrichton's new novel, his 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, as he scrambles to defend himself (enlisting the help of a sagacious woman lawyer whose career has been built on the successful prosecution of men charged with sexual misconduct), 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 Chrichton at his galvanizing best."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

What a nice way to see how a woman can control a situation. Every time you want to interrupt and tell him how to handle the situation. Great reading, don't forget to see the movie, although the book is much better. Read full review

About the author (1994)

John Michael Crichton, known as Michael Crichton, was born on October 28, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois. He wrote novels while attending Harvard University and Harvard Medical School to help pay the tuition. One of these, The Andromeda Strain, which was published in 1969, became a bestseller. After graduating summa cum laude, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute in California before becoming a full-time writer and film director. His carefully researched novels included Eaters of the Dead, The Terminal Man, The Great Train Robbery, Congo, Sphere, Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure, The Lost World, Airframe, and Micro. He also wrote non-fiction works including Five Patients: The Hospital Explained, Jasper Johns, and Travels. In the late 1960s, he also wrote under the pen names Jeffrey Hudson and John Lange. He has received several awards including Writer of the Year in 1970 from the Association of American Medical Writers and two Edgar Awards in 1968 and in 1979. Many of his novels have been made into highly successful films, six of which he directed. He was also the creator and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning television series ER. In addition to his writing and directorial success, his expertise in information science enabled him to run a software company and develop a computer game. He died of cancer on November 4, 2008 at the age of 66.
