Steve Jobs Authorized Bio Will Include His Resignation


By Jason Boog Comment

Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple last night, generating thousands of tweets, articles and tributes. As Jobs steps back, Simon & Schuster said that Walter Isaacson‘s biography of the tech leader will include his resignation when it comes out on November 21st.

Here’s more from PC Mag: “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 book promises interviews with Jobs’ ex-girlfriends, foes, family, and fired colleagues. Furthermore, Jobs apparently didn’t demand to review the book before it went to print. There are plenty of unauthorized biographies of Jobs, but this is the first written with his blessing.”

Above, we’ve embedded a video of Jobs introducing the Macintosh computer in 1984. Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography will sell for $19.50 in hardcover on Amazon and the Kindle price is set at $16.50. (Via Publishers Weekly)
