And what a accidental revolutionary he is

If your a technology geek like me you know what Linux is and you know that Linus Torvalds was the programmer behind it. Well Just for Fun tells Linus' whole life story.

The book is split into two parts, the book even says that, with the first part being from his childhood to college and writing Linux and how it changed the computer world and the second part is Linus' thoughts on the computer industry, life, and other philosophy subjects.
As I said before I'm a tech geek and really like hearing about tech and found the first part of the book really enjoyable but the second I didn't fully enjoy but that was because of my personal beliefs but was a good insight to Linus' way of thinking.

And the writing is good for a ghost writer as instead of making the book sound like Linus was writing it and was written more like a interview.

For geeks like me this is a must read into learning how the whole open source movement really started but if your not this books first might be way over your head.
