Steve Jobs biography to be released on October 24

A biography of Steve Jobs is to be released earlier than planned in the wake of the Apple co-founder’s death this week.

The authorized biography ‘Steve Jobs’, was originally planned for release on November 21, but the release date has now been pushed up to October 24, following Jobs’ death on Wednesday, according to a spokesman for publishing house Simon & Schuster.

The biography, written by Walter Isaacson – the former managing editor of Time magazine and current chief executive of the Aspen Institute, is currently the No. 1 bestseller on Amazon's customer purchase list.

Meanwhile, Bluewater Productions said it was rushing out a special edition e-book of its forthcoming comic book on Jobs. The 32-page comic titled ‘Steve Jobs: Founder of Apple’ can be purchased on the NOOK and Kindle reading devices from Thursday. The print edition comic-book is due for release at the end of October, with a portion of the profits from both issues going to the American Cancer Society.

Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, died this week at the age of 56.
