Just for Fun: The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary - Linus Torvalds

An interesting look at an archetypal geek, and a man who isn't in it for the money, fame, or power, just wanting to have software that did want he wanted it to do. He also saw building linux as an intellectual exercise that he could learn a lot from, working from one computer, to saving up to buy another from a catalogue.

A reasonably reticent and retiring type, it was well done by the author to get this book published.
