Paperback Version of 'Steve Jobs' Biography Coming September 10 with Younger Jobs on Cover

AllThingsD reports that the paperback version of Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Steve Jobs will be released on September 10, nearly two years after the book's original release. According to publisher Simon & Schuster, the paperback version will include a new afterword as well as a new cover image showing a young Steve Jobs in the same pose seen with an older Jobs on the original cover.

[N]ew art, taken by Norman Seeff in 1984, should attract a lot of attention. The original striking and simple black-and-white photo of Jobs on the hardcover jacket of “Steve Jobs” — which was taken by Albert Watson in 2006 — showed the legendary tech figure later in his life and was an image Jobs approved. The new one has Jobs in the exact same thumb-on-chin pose, with the exact same intense gaze that he was well known for.

Don't bother with this overpriced garbage. There are cheaper and better specced books on the market that have more pages and a colour cover.

I disagree. Younger Jobs has laser eyes that cut into the soul. The glasses on Older Jobs distorts that laser just a bit.

But they're both amazing pictures. I already own the hardcover copy and I don't really want to own the paperback (those are so hard to keep in good condition, and I'd hate to distort His image) - how can I get that afterword without buying the new copy? Is it not like a free software update? Am I not entitled to it?

Wait...did you actually intentionally capitalize the "H" above!?:eek:

Get a grip, Mate...he's hasn't risen yet!
