Steve Jobs' heart isn't easy to win, especially if you're a writer looking to pen the first authorized biography of Mr. Mac himself.
Well, it turns out that Steve Jobs may have finally succumbed to the journalistic advances of former Time editor Walter Isaacson. Since the iPad isn't out yet, you likely didn't read the The New York Times report that Isaacson has been personally selected by Mr. Jobs to write the biography some have waited years for.
He is the author of two best-selling biographies, “Einstein: His Life and Universe” and “Benjamin Franklin: An American Life.”
The book is already in the works and will cover everything from Jobs' childhood to his present role at Apple. Although there is no reason to believe that Steve Jobs' health has taken a turn for the worse, some will naturally see this news as an indication that Steve Jobs wants his story told (in accordance with his blessing) while he is still around to participate in an authorized story-telling process. As the New York Times is quick to point out, Steve Jobs will turn 55 later this month.
According to the report, Steve Jobs is even planning to take Isaacson on a tour of his childhood home. Apparently, Mr. Jobs is feeling particularly sentimental these days. And while the release of a Steve Jobs authorized biography likely won't generate the hype of a major new product reveal from Apple, millions will certainly be eager to learn more about the life and times of a private man who's innovation and commitment to technology profoundly impacted all of our lives - whether we recognize it or not.
The biography will be available as an eBook exclusively for Amazon's Kindle.
