Eric S. Raymond, like many famous hackers, is a Character. He's also a clear, entertaining, and methodical writer.

There is a lot here on the sociology of open source software development, and on ideas that are not strictly connected to the details of coding. So one could conceivably enjoy the book without any real knowledge of software design. I'm not sure about this, though.
