Apple CEO Steve Jobs has finally given nod to an authorised biography.

’iSteve: The Book Of Jobs’ will hit bookshops early next year, written by Walter Isaacson, who is rumoured to have been penning the biography since 2009 after interviewing the computer genius, members of his family, colleagues at Apple and competitors.

Many biographies have been written about the 56-year-old, who is the man behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad, but not with his authorisation and he has disapproved of at least one book.

“This is the perfect match of subject and author, and it is certain to be a landmark book about one of the world’s greatest innovators,” the Daily Mail quoted Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon and Schuster, as saying.

“Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of a revolutionary genius,” Karp added.
