Apple CEO Jobs to cooperate on official biography

Following the publication of several unauthorized biographies on Apple CEO Steve Jobs, which lacked his cooperation and sometimes drew his ire, the Apple co-founder is set to collaborate on an official biography. Citing two people briefed on the project, the New York Times reports that Jobs has agreed to collaborate with Walter Isaacson, former managing editor of Time magazine, on the book. Still in the early planning stages, the book is said to cover Jobs’ entire life, from his youth in the Silicon Valley area through his second term at Apple. Jobs, who will turn 55 on February 24, has reportedly invited Isaacson to tour his childhood home as part of the project. Isaacson is the author of two previous best-selling biographies, “Einstein: His Life and Universe” and “Benjamin Franklin: An American Life;” all of his books have been published by Simon & Schuster, which was touted as one of five major publishers on board to provide content for Apple’s upcoming iBookstore.

No doubt it will only be available only through the iBook app store.  And if Steve doesn’t like a single word in the final form, he’ll just pull it from the App Store and the book will no longer exist.

I feel sorry for Walter Isaacson.  I don’t think he has any idea of the control freak he is going to be dealing with.  I guess Steve Jobs thinks he’s right up there with Einstein and Benj. Franklin.  What a Messiah Complex.
