    I preordered my hardcover copy a few months ago.
    So, yes.

    Pre-ordered for iBooks, it's supposedly the most revealing portrait of Steve Jobs on every issue.

    I think I preordered the Kindle version. If I didn't I will purchase it when it comes out.

    Is there an audiobook version? I wasn't going to read it, but I will if there is an audiobook.

    http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Jobs-Walter-Isaacson/dp/1451648537

    Seems kind of pricy at just over $30... Not sure if that price is the norm for an audio book.

    ----------

    The book doesn't come out till Monday.if you preordered online, they will automatically ship it once it is out. If you preordered in a store, or online for instore pickup, you are reserving a copy that won't be placed on the shelf, and is guaranteed yours, even if they run out of stock on the shelves.

    because it will automatically download the second it becomes available. When I wake up monday, I can just pick up my iPad a start reading. No need to go to the ibooks store, search, and download it.
