We're months away from the March, 2012 release of an authorized biography about Apple CEO Steve Jobs, but the book is already a top seller on Amazon.
The text, titled “iSteve: The Book of Jobs”, was cruising at No. 31 on the web retailer's best-seller list with a price of $18 at the time of this post. According to the Los Angeles Times, the book hit the top 10 on Monday - the same day Jobs unveiled Apple’s new iCloud service - vacillating between No. 9 and No. 13.
That was for the hardcover, however – on Monday, the Kindle edition of the text was sitting at No. 161 on the device's paid bestseller list.
Jobs is working on the book with Aspen Institute President and Chief Executive Walter Isaacson, who’s previously written biographies on Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. The bio will be published by Simon & Schuster, and the publishing house is certain that it’ll be a “landmark book about one of the world’s greatest innovators.”
