While it pertained more to average things (businesses and sexual harrasment) than do the other books of his that I enjoy more, I REALLY enjoyed reading about this man's endeavors to see that justice prevailed.

I like the characters. The story about sexual harassment was interestinng because a man was a victim. I have to say I thought Meredith is a crybaby.

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.

I picked this up in the Airport before a flight, and was half way through it before I realized I had seen the movie a few years earlier, heh.. It's very good. I actually enjoyed it a little more than the movie, and it drew me into the story more too.

A woman scorned is a formidable thing. Especially when she's your boss. This book gives men a taste of what women have been dealing with for centuries. The book is much more engrossing than the movie because of Chrichton's superb writing.

Role reversal in a sexual harassment suit starts this story off with a bang, but the main female character's character is so weak that only the side plots kept me reading. Not Crichton's best.

If you loved the movie, you will love the book. However, the book is much more suspenseful.

A good read. If you want to know what sexual harassment is and how it is dealt with by the law, this story tells it. Takes place in a tech company, woman harasses her subordinate.

I love Michael Crichton's books. They are so off the wall and hit you from behind every time. There are just so many twists and turns, that you find yourself looking totally in the wrong direction for the bad guy. Fabulous!

Tom Sanders, a guy in charge of the development and production of new computer components has expected to be promoted when the merger takes place. However, unexpectedly the position is given to a woman he used to date who in his opinion has zero experience for the position.

Meredith Johnson, the woman in question, apparently has a problem separating her personal life (a slut) from her professional (a woman in power) and is systematically sexually harassing various men reporting to her.

Tom is one such man but instead of leaving with his tail between his legs like all the others. He begins a sexual harrassment lawsuit against both Meredith and the company they both work for.

What happens next is just amazing and well thought out. A terrific tale.
