The first authorized biography of Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, is set to arrive on Nov.21, 2011, pushed up by five months.
Book publisher Simon and Schuster is releasing the book ahead of its March 2012 schedule because “the book is now ready".
The biography titled as “Steve Jobs: A Biography” includes several interviews with Jobs’ family members, friends, adversaries, competitors and colleagues,” according to the publisher.
"This book chronicles the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing," says the description of the book.
According to the publishers, “Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits and instead encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly, even foes, former girlfriends, and colleagues he had once fired or infuriated."
The book deals with Jobs’ innovation, character, leadership and failures.
Jobs himself has said the book will be open about his own failures. "I’ve done a lot of things I’m not proud of, such as getting my girlfriend pregnant when I was 23 and the way I handled that,” he said. “But I don’t have any skeletons in my closet that can’t be allowed out.”
The book is expected to be a bestseller, being based on an iconic figure, who charmed the tech world with the creation of Apple. Jobs is currently on a medical leave from Apple now, though he takes part in taking decision for the company.
Walter Isaacson, who was the president of the Aspen Institute, a former executive at Times magazine and CNN has also written the best selling books about Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
