'Steve Jobs: A Biography' To Be Released On November 21st

The authorised biography of Steve Jobs, the co-founder and current chief executive of the world’s largest tech company and maker of the legendary iPhone, iPad and Mac ranges, will be released on November 21st.

According to tech website Apple Insider, the book, entitled “Steve Jobs: A Biography” which is being compiled by author Walter Isaacson, is arriving in time for Christmas having previously been tipped to appear in early 2012.

The book, which will be published by Simon & Schuster, is said to be a compilation of several interviews with Jobs conducted by Isaacson during the three years of its preparation. The book is expected to touch nearly every aspect of the life of the man who made Apple Inc the brand that it is today; touching on his family, former girlfriends, colleagues and much more.

"He was not a model boss or human being, tidily packaged for emulation. Driven by demons, he could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple's hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system,” the overview of the autobiography reads.

Interestingly, Jobs has not demanded any clause to read the book before undergoing publishing nor does he exercise any power over the content of the book.

"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...but I don't have any skeletons in my closet that can't be allowed out," Jobs revealed, regarding the upcoming book.

An eAudio version of the book will be available for $17.95 from the publishers Simon & Schuster.
