Wie ABCNews heute berichtet, wird Walter Isaacson Anfang 2012 beim Verlag Simon and Shuster eine Authorisierte Biographie von veröffenltichen. Der treffende Titel: „iSteve: The Book of Jobs“.


Steve Jobs

„iSteve“ wird Isaacson’s 4. große Biographie, nach Werken über Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin und Albert Einstein.

Many Jobs biographies have been written, but not with his authorization. He reacted to at least one book with active disapproval. In 2005, Apple banished works by John Wiley & Sons from its stores because the publisher had signed up an unauthorized biography, „iCon: Steve Jobs, The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business,“ by Jeffrey S. Young and William L. Simon.

„This is the perfect match of subject and author, and it is certain to be a landmark book about one of the world’s greatest innovators,“ Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement. „Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of revolutionary genius.“
