Apple boss has given official nod to project, which has been running since 2009.
Steve Jobs’s official biography will be released next year. Called iSteve: The Book of Jobs, it will be published by Simon & Schuster and has been written by Walter Isaacson, whose previous work includes books on Einstein, Benjamin Franklin and Henry Kissinger.
The book itself has been in progress since 2009, with the man himself giving time. There are also interviews with close friends, Apple staffers and even competitors. It’s the first time Jobs has given his seal of approval to a book detailing his life as the head of one of the world’s biggest companies.
There’s no doubting that iSteve, despite (or perhaps because of) its somewhat trashy title, will sell by the bucketload. Jobs’ myth has grown as Apple has gone from niche player to second-largest corporation on the planet.
