The New York Times has reported that Apple head honcho, Steve Jobs, is all set to collaborate with author Walter Isaacson, the former managing editor of Time magazine, to publish an authorised biography about Steve Jobs himself.
The newspaper said that, according to two sources ‘briefed on the matter’, Steve Jobs has decided to put his life into words with the help of the acclaimed writer-editor, who has previously written biographies on famous personalities such as Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.
The unidentified sources have also reported that the Steve Jobs has invited Isaacson to his childhood home so that he could get first hand knowledge about the childhood days of Steve Jobs for the biography.
This according to the Time, will cover the ‘the entire life of Mr. Jobs, from his youth in the area now known as Silicon Valley through his years at Apple.’
Over the years, a significant number of unauthorized biographies describing the life of Apple’s leader have surfaced but have failed to make an impact as they were missing the key details that only Steve Jobs himself could have provided.
However, now it seems that Steve Jobs is bent on telling his life’s story to the whole world, which will surely love to read the first hand account of Steve Jobs life and how he steered Apple clear of bankruptcy and ensued an era of technological marvels such as the iPhone and the revolutionary iPod.
So, if Steve Jobs Get a biography soon, maybe there is a movie coming up as well with a young Steve Jobs meeting an equally tender-aged Steve Wozniak. Jobs has a multi-faceted personality and one which is particularly complex. Anyhow, we look forward to read the biography which might incidentally be a bestseller on the iPad.
