It's a good book. However, it is an autobiogprahpy and as such contains more info on Linus himself than on his OS, although you do get some cool Linux history. He talks about what it was like growing up as a geek and how he got interested in OS's after being introduced to an old Sinclair machine. Is not full of technical details, however. It reads fast and is kind of disorganised (almost seems put together from an archive of emails) but all in all is a good read.

For those who found the book 'Just For Fun' a bit causual and autobiographical, here's another one of similar sorts, only more technical and informative:

Just For Fun was a fun read, but it was a bit on the 'quippy' side. Will check out Rebel Code after I finish 'The Cathedral and the Bazaar' (interesting topic, but a very Kantian writing style).
