Steve Jobs' biographer could release updated book

If you are one of the many people who purchased and read the recent biography of the late Steve Jobs, you might be either happy or frustrated to hear that an updated version of the book by author Walter Isaacson might be in the works. Fortune's web site reports that Isaacson has now hinted strongly that he intends to go back and add content to the already large 630 page biography of Apple's co-founder.

At a recent event in San Francisco, Isaacson stated of the biography "This is the first or second draft. It's not the final draft." He mentioned that one possible way to expand on the book is to add a large number of annotations. Yet another idea would be to add a new addendum that would deal with Jobs' actual death on October 5 and the events that surrounded it. The biography was completed before Jobs' death and was later published a few weeks after Jobs' death on October 24.

The book became a huge best seller and earlier in December Amazon.com declared that the Steve Jobs biography was its best selling book of 2011, despite only being released in the last quarter of the year. You can bet that an updated version by Isaacson would also sell extremely well.
