Excerpt from "A Short History of the O’Reilly Animals" - Edie Freedman

This quote was added by vimcredible
People will go to great lengths to avoid seeing certain animals. The husband of one reader complained about our use of a spider on - and in - Webmaster in a Nutshell. Spiders terrified his wife. He went through the entire book and put white tape over the graphic on the first page of every chapter so she wouldn't have to confront the spider.
