Sexual Harassment: A Guide

An instant how-not-to book prompted by the Thomas hearings spells it out with classroom clarity

Susan Webb's new book, Step Forward, (MasterMedia; $9.95) will not hit the stores for another week or so, but already her publisher is fielding a dozen requests a day for bulk orders.

The result is an accessible sort of Cliffs Notes guide to the topic that will have special appeal...
