Jobs reportedly authorized bio so his kids can know him better

Posted on October 7th, 2011. Written by Blancer.

In an essay for Time magazine’s October 17th issue, Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson says the reason Jobs agreed to a biography was because he wanted his kids to know him better.

“I wanted my kids to know me. I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did,” Jobs told Isaacson at their final meeting, which he said was “a few weeks ago.”

Walter Isaacson’s biography of notoriously private Jobs, simply titled “Steve Jobs,” has been moved up to an October 24th publishing date. Before the move, the biography was set to be published on November 21, which was another publishing date change from its original March 6, 2012 date. After Jobs’s death on October 5th, the 656-page biography shot up Amazon’s book sales charts and currently holds the #1 (hardcover) and #2 (Kindle) spots on the site.
