That Jobs is cooperating with a biographer and putting his stamp of approval on the book is a pretty big deal–other, unauthorized biographies of the Apple wizard have been previously written and met with…less than stellar reviews.
Young told MacCentral at the time that “Apple didn’t have any factual issues, but they just didn’t want the book to be published, apparently.”
The plot thickens–what will be in this new, authorized biography? What secrets of Apple genius will Isaacson shed light on?
Publisher Simon & Schuster is as quiet as an Apple store employee. According to Simon & Schuster spokeswoman Tracey Guest, no further details are currently available, and neither Jobs nor Isaacson will be commenting on the book.
It’s almost as mysterious as an Apple product announcement!
