Apple CEO Steve Jobs has finally agreed to participate in a book about his life.
Simon & Schuster announced on Sunday that Walter Isaacson’s Steve: The Book of Jobs will be published in early 2012. Isaacson has been working on the long-rumored biography since 2009 and has interviewed Jobs, members of his family, colleagues at Apple and competitors.
Many books have been published about Jobs, but not with his approval. Isaacson has written best-selling biographies of Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
Jobs, has had numerous health problems and announced in January that he would take his third leave of absence in seven years.
He has survived a rare form of pancreatic cancer and undergone a liver transplant.
