Steve Jobs: A Biography is an upcoming, and the first authorized, biography of Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc. It is written by Walter Isaacson. The acclaimed biographer Walter Isaacson spent three years conducting 40 “exclusive and unprecedented" interviews with the famously closed-off Apple co-founder and also spoke with over 100 of Jobs’ family members, friends and co-workers for his book.
The biography was originally due for release on November 21, 2011 but was pushed forward to the October release date following the news of Jobs’ death. It is currently scheduled for release on October 24, 2011 by Simon & Schuster.
Sony Pictures is planning on acquiring the film rights for Isaacson’s book.
