Walter Isaacson is writing an authorized biography on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs. Book publisher Simon & Schuster announced this past weekend that Isaacson’s book will be called “iSteve: The Book of Jobs” and it will be out in early 2012. Isaacson has been working on the biography since 2009.
Isaacson interviewed Jobs’ family members, competitors, and colleagues to come up with the book’s content. Several biographies have been written about Jobs, but this is the first authorized book. Isaacson is a former executive at CNN and Time Magazine. Isaacson has written best sellers about Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
