Steve Jobs' Biography to Release Oct 24

San Francisco, Oct 7 (IANS): US publisher Simon & Schuster said Thursday it will advance the release date of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' official biography to Oct 24.

It is the second time that the publisher has moved up the publication date of "Steve Jobs", reported Xinhua.

In August, the biography was scheduled to come out Nov 21, a big leap from the previously announced March 6, 2012.

Pre-order sales of the book skyrocketed overnight after the tech guru died at the age of 56 Wednesday.

The book jumped from No. 424 to No. 1 on Amazon's overall best sellers ranking and is also No. 4 at bookseller Barnes & Noble.

The book is highly anticipated as it is the only biography that has been approved by Jobs. It is written by former managing editor of Time magazine Walter Issacson who has written biographies of Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin and Henry Kissinger.
