Steve Jobs Biography to Include Resignation Details, November Debut On Schedule







PCMag.com reports that Steve Jobs' authorized biography, initially slated for a March 2012 release but recently bumped up to a November 21st debut, will be updated to include details on his resignation as Apple CEO yesterday. The changes will not result in a delay for the book's release.
Quote:
Publisher Simon & Schuster said the highly anticipated tell-all biography, written by acclaimed biographer Walter Isaacson, will include Wednesday night's announcement from Jobs' point of view.

Simon & Schuster spokeswoman Tracey Guest told PCMag that Isaacson "speaks to Jobs regularly and is still working on the final chapter of the book."
The biography, simply titled "Steve Jobs", is the first authorized look at Steve Jobs' life. It is being written by former Time managing editor Walter Isaacson and is based on over 40 interviews with Jobs and additional interviews with over 100 colleagues, friends, and family members. Jobs has offered his complete cooperation with the effort, making no subject off-limits and not requesting the right to review material before publication.

That's good - this is a major part of his life, and it would suck to have the book end without getting more insight from Jobs about how he felt about it all.

I just hope people are satisfied with what they hear in the book and can stay out of his personal life afterward.

I'm sure I'll tear up reading about how hard it was for him to step back.

I hope your Kindle doesn't self-destruct, or magically surf to the online Apple store and buy an iPad.

Or both!

I usually read fiction (sci fi or fantasy), but this is one biography that I will read.

In typical Steve Jobs fashion, his biography sales will break records.

I love biographies.

If you want to be succesffull read a book about a successful person.

The Founder of Sony's biography is great. Def worth reading. Sony was so innovative early on. The leasership of the founder and his ideas sparked it all just like Steve.

I'm reading Idea Man now. So cool to hear about the early days of Microsoft and a young Paul Allen and Bill Gates.

Great. It's only a matter of time before we find out why Steve made his decision.

I'm going to buy the hardcover book. This book is too great to be stuck on a kindle
