Books: The Book of Job[s]

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

Previously titled "iSteve: The Book of Jobs" has received a new release date: November 21st. Being a total MacHead, this authorized biography of Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs (the first of its kind mind you) has me extremely excited. The man has been very cooperative with the publication of this biography, going so far as to not leave any topic untouchable. I'm sure there is much to be said about the journey to success of the man behind the world's most valuable company. If this book does well, it's pretty likely that a film adaptation will soon follow — Steve Jobs is as enigmatic as Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and we know the latter spawned The Social Network (2010). Pre-orders are currently being offered through Amazon's bookstore; ignore the release date, the November date is the most recently updated.

eta: the back cover and binding images have been released...
"The cover," writes Isaacson in private e-mail, "is the Albert Watson portrait taken for Fortune in 2009. The back is a Norman Seeff portrait of him in the lotus position holding the original Macintosh, which ran in Rolling Stone in January 1984. The title font is Helvetica. It will look as you see it, with no words on the back cover." [Fortune/CNN Money]
