Simon & Schuster on Sunday said that a biography of Steve Jobs would be released in 2012.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]The big difference between this book and other attempts to write about Jobs in the past is that this is an authorized biography, according to AppleInsider.

The book will be titled “iSteve: The Book of Jobs” and will be written by former Time executive Walter Isaacson. The author has reportedly interviewed Jobs, family members, co-workers and competitors for the 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,” Jonathan Karp, publisher of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement. “Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of revolutionary genius.”

No doubt this will be a best-seller.
