There have been several goes at penning biographies of the life of Jobs, but it seems that they have fallen short of the glory of Steve so, like Moses, he has decided to pen one of his own.
Already the tame Apple press has found out about the great work and said that it will reflect the genius of the man who gave the world so many brilliant gadgets. They point out that none of the biographers had any cooperation from Jobs.
Of course the great Messiah is not going to actually sit down with his iMac and write it himself. Apparently it is going to be written by Walter Isaacson, the former managing editor of Time magazine.
The book, which is in the early planning stages, would cover the entire life of Jobs, from his birth in a stable in Silicon Valley, it will also cover his miracles such as the feeding of 50,000 fanbois and the creation of the iPod and iPhone.
Isaacson is the author of two best-selling biographies, “Einstein: His Life and Universe” and “Benjamin Franklin: An American Life.” He also wrote “American Sketches: Great Leaders, Creative Thinkers, and Heroes of a Hurricane,” a collection of essays written last year delving into the roots of great leadership.
Obviously Steve is hoping that he will get a better deal from Isaacson than the writers of the likes of “iCon: Steve Jobs, the Greatest Second Act in the History of Business,” by Jeffrey S. Young and William L. Simon, and “The Second Coming of Steve Jobs,” by Alan Deutschman.
Jobs was furious at such books and has directed Apple stores to temporarily remove other books from the same publishers from their shelves.
It seems then that Jobs has emerged from his battle with cancer with a desire to tell his side of the story in case he croaks.
