Steve Jobs' Authorized Biography Gets New Title

522218512 cdc8f7cdf6
The authorized biography of Steve Jobs, announced earlier this year and scheduled to be released by Simon & Schuster in March 2012, has a new title.

According to Fortune, the old title, iSteve: The Book of Jobs, chosen by the publisher's publicity department, wasn't a favorite around author Walter Isaacson's household. Isaacson has succeeded in getting a new title approved:

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.

In 2010, it was first reported that Steve Jobs had agreed to participate in an authorized biography. The book is due on March 6th, 2012 and is already available for pre-order from Amazon.

I wonder when people will start lining up outside Barnes and Noble?

Why do that when we have Kindles and iPads?

I'm sure Steve won't mind missing out on a little cash not entering his 95ct gold lined wallet.

:D no cash enters his gold lined wallet besides the $1 he gets every year from his job at Apple...

Apparently the first edition will have extra blank pages and heavy paper. The second print will be 10% lighter and thinner. The third print will drop support for words altogether (though you can still write your own on the 20 blank pages provided).

The fourth print (Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson 4P) will be a thought rather than a physical product. It will cost more than the print versions, and you may not share it.
