The official biography of Steve Jobs is still set for a November release, and the publication will include details of his recent resignation.

According to PCMag.com, the official biography of former Apple CEO – Steve Jobs – will be updated to feature vital details with regards to his recent resignation. The said changes would not affect the launching date of the publication. “Steve Jobs: A Biography” is still set to be released on November 21, 2011, instead of the previously announced release date of March 23, 2012.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said the highly anticipated tell-all biography, written by acclaimed biographer Walter Isaacson, will include Wednesday night’s announcement from Jobs’ point of view.

Simon & Schuster spokeswoman Tracey Guest told PCMag that Isaacson “speaks to Jobs regularly and is still working on the final chapter of the book.”

The biography, which is originally titled as “iSteve: The Book of Jobs”, is the first official book that highlights most of the events in Jobs’ life. It was written by Walter Isaacson, the former CEO of CNN and Time’s former managing editor. “Steve Jobs: A Biography” includes over 40 interviews conducted with Steve, and additional interviews with his friends and family members. Few personal details were added on the book as well.

All information written on the biography are factual and authorized. In fact, Steve Jobs had contributed his own effort just to make the publication successful.

Steve Jobs: A Biography, Slated to Hit Bookshelves on November

Written on August 16, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Steve Jobs' official biography will be available on November 21, 2011; instead of the previously announced release date of March 23, 2012.

The release of “Steve Jobs: A Biography”, the official biography of Apple’s co-founder and CEO – Steve Jobs, will be hitting the shelves earlier than expected.

According to sources, the said publication is now set to be released on November 21, 2011. The first goal of its publisher, Simon & Schuster, was to launch the biography in March of 2012, but decided to hand out the books earlier since “the book is now ready.”

Originally titled as “iSteve: The Book of Jobs”, Steve’s biography was written by Walter Isaacson — the former CEO of CNN and Time’s former managing editor. The book includes most of Steve’s interviews. It also highlights the CEO’s vision of connecting creativity with technology, and some personal facts too. Knowing that Jobs has been too secretive about his personal life, he has then decided to reveal his past in order to provide lessons. “I’ve done a lot of things I’m not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was 23 and the way I handled that,” Steve said. “But I don’t have any skeletons in my closet that can’t be allowed out.”

Steve Jobs: A Biography can be grabbed from Barnes & Noble (e-book) for $14.99, and its hard copy for $20.40.
