Official Steve Jobs biography out in November

official steve jobs biography out in novemberThose of you keen to get the inside story – the authorized one – on Steve Jobs will be pleased to learn that the release of Steve Jobs: A Biography has been brought forward four months by publisher Simon & Schuster. 9to5Mac spotted the information about the new release date – November 21 – on bookseller Barnes & Noble’s website.

Tracey Guest, director of publicity for Simon & Schuster, told the New York Times that the release date had been shifted because simply “the book is now ready.”

The book is the work of former Time managing editor Walter Isaacson. Isaacson, who has already penned popular biographies about Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein, has been working on Steve Jobs: A Biography for the last three years.

With 448 pages of Steve-related material, it should tell fans of the man everything they need to know about the Apple boss, and possibly a bit more. Content has been drawn from more than 40 interviews with Jobs himself, along with information gathered from family and friends.

The Barnes & Noble webpage listing the book calls the biography “the definitive portrait of the greatest innovator of his generation.”

According to 9to5Mac, Jobs made this comment about the forthcoming biography: “I’ve done a lot of things I’m not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was 23 and the way I handled that. But I don’t have any skeletons in my closet that can’t be allowed out.”

The description of Steve Jobs: A Biography says it “chronicles the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.”

Jobs cooperated fully with the writing of the book and was said to “put nothing off limits and instead encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly, even foes, former girlfriends, and colleagues he had once fired or infuriated.” Should make for an interesting read then.

To find out all about Steve will cost you $20.40 for the hardcover edition. And no doubt, just like his iPhones and iPads, it’ll fly off the shelves.
