Steve Jobs Official Biography In The Making

Steve Jobs – the man, the myth, the legend – is finally getting an official biography. And he didn’t pick just anybody to collaborate for the book. Jobs choice is Walter Isaacson, former managing editor of Time magazine, and current chief executive and president of the Aspen Institute, a Washington education nonprofit.

Steve Jobs – the man, the myth, the legend – is finally getting an official biography. And he didn’t pick just anybody to collaborate for the book. Jobs choice is Walter Isaacson, former managing editor of Time magazine, and current chief executive and president of the Aspen Institute, a Washington education nonprofit.

Walter Isaacson is not at his first biography. He previously wrote the autobiography of  Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein and Henry Kissinger.

The book, which is in the early planning stages, would cover the entire life of Mr. Jobs, from his youth in the area now known as Silicon Valley through his years at Apple, these people said.

Mr. Jobs, who will turn 55 on Feb. 24, has invited Mr. Isaacson to tour his childhood home, one person with knowledge of the discussion said.

Cooperation with Mr. Isaacson could be a sign that Mr. Jobs has emerged from his recent health battles with more of an interest in shaping his legacy.

There are a couple unofficial biographies out there, but  Jobs has reacted angrily to some of these books, and in some cases has directed Apple stores to temporarily remove other books from the same publishers from their shelves.

I don’t know about you , but i already have a special place for this book in my library…
