Jobs bio pushed up

John Moe Oct 7, 2011

The Steve Jobs biography release date is being pushed up to October 24. Biographer Walter Isaacson visited Jobs two weeks before he died for the book’s final interview. Isaacson wrote an essay that appeared in Time.com where he writes what Jobs told him about why there needed to be a book: “I wanted my kids to know me,” and “I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”
