Steve Jobs uncharacteristically approves upcoming biography

Steve JobsFans and critics alike may soon have access to the first authorized biography of Apple CEO Steve Jobs. According to the New York Times, former Time magazine editor Walter Isaacson has been selected to work with Jobs. Currently, neither Isaacson nor Jobs have confirmed the report, but the paper claims to have spoken to multiple individuals with inside knowledge of the project.

Steve JobsThe last known published biography of Jobs was published in 2005 by John Wiley & Son and was of the (usual) unauthorized variety. The book, entitled iCon Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business, caught the ire of the ornery CEO, leading to removal of all John Wiley & Son books from Apple Store shelves. This included the Mac OS X Bible, and Mac OS X Illustrated.

The new book is in the early planning stages and will most likely be published by Simon & Schuster, the firm responsible for Isaacson's other works. Jobs has already authorized a tour of his childhood home for the author, according to the report.

One can only hope that the biography will be balanced and talk about the lesser-known aspects of Jobs' life. We also hope to hear some of the more controversial aspects, including his temper, his relationship with his daughter Lisa (after which the Lisa computer was named), and details regarding his health history. Regardless of the content, though, the book will surely sell piles of copies due to Apple's current level of popularity.
