Authorized Steve Jobs Biography, iSteve: The Book of Jobs, Coming in 2012


Publisher Simon & Schuster has announced that they will release the very first authorized biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs early next year. iSteve: The Book of Jobs will be written by Walter Isaacson, who has spent three years interviewing and working with Jobs.

Isaacson began working on the book in 2009, and was given access to Jobs, members of his family, colleagues at Apple, and competitors. He is the president and CEO of The Aspen Institute, as well as the bestselling author of several other biographies, including Benjamin Franklin: An American Life and Einstein: His Life and Universe.

“This is the perfect match of subject and author, and it is certain to be a landmark book about one of the world’s greatest innovators,” said Jonathan Karp, Publisher of Simon & Schuster. “Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of revolutionary genius.”

Jobs, who has battled pancreatic cancer and undergone a liver transplant, is currently on medical leave from Apple.
