According to the report, the first official biography of Steve Jobs will be out in early 2012.
The book, which will be written by Walter Isaacson, a respected biographer and entitled “iSteve: The Book of Jobs“, is the officially allowed Steve Jobs biography. This is not the first time we have heard of this teamwork, it was announced that the book had went into its early planning stages in March 2010, but it’s the first we have heard of a provisional release date.
That Jobs is helping with a biographer and placing his stamp of endorsement on the book is an appealing big contract–other, illegal biographies of the Apple wizard have been beforehand written and got together with…below stellar reviews.
Get Jeffrey Young and William Simon’s 2005 biography of Jobs, “iCon: The Most Second Act in the History of Business”, published by Wiley & Sons, for instance. Not just did Jobs not have the same opinion to the biography, but I presume he directed Apple to pull all of the material of the publisher, including Mac-related technical books and the well-known “For Dummies” books from Apple retail store shelves.
Young informed MacCentral at the moment that “Apple didn’t have any factual issues, but they just didn’t want the book to be published, apparently.”
According to Simon & Schuster spokeswoman Tracey Guest, no more details are presently accessible, and neither Jobs nor Isaacson will be remarking on the book.
It’s nearly as strange as an Apple product announcement!
