    No, its too widely available. Collectibles tend to be rate first editions of older books which may have been published before the author became famous.

    Nope. I can go to my bookstore and get a box of copies right now. Collectables are things that are limited in quantity and have a level of rarity.

    No its a book, there is nothing particularly rare or peculiar that would make it collectable. They printed a gazillion copies, anybody who wants one can get one.

    It's collectable to me. It makes a great addition to my collection of Apple stuff.

    No. But book collectors argue with 1st editions.

    Maybe if it was an autographed copy, in which case it would be super-collectible, but I don't know if Jobs autographed any before he passed away.
