Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs is getting longer.
As noticed by Setteb.it, the Steve Jobs hardcover now weighs in at 656 pages, up from 448 pages. Presumably at least some of this increased length is related to the inclusion of stories about Jobs' resignation from Apple, Inc. last month.
We confirmed the page number change with publisher Simon & Schuster's publicity department, which also re-confirmed the book's November 21, 2011 release date.
Update: Isaacson has reported to Fortune that he always intended for the book to be at the newly-revealed length and that the earlier number was simply a placeholder.
"I was always aiming at this length. The original pubdate and page number info entered in the databases were just there as a placeholder."
There's no reason, he adds, that Steve Jobs should get fewer pages than Ben Franklin or Albert Einstein, the subjects of two previous Isaacson biographies.
