The authorised bioraphy of Steve Jobs will be released earlier than planned, it has been announced.
Overwhelming demand since the Apple co-founder's death on October 5 has lead to the publication of his official life story to be pushed forward from November 21 to October 24 by publisher Simon & Schuster.
Titled Steve Jobs, the Walter Isaacson book has risen from 437 to 1 in Amazon's bestseller list based on pre-orders alone.
It is also at the top of iTunes' bestseller list.
The biography is being described as: "A riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur, whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionised six industries - personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing."
Isaacson conducted forty interviews with Jobs over a period of two years, as well as many other friends, family members, colleagues and fans.
Simon & Schuster confirmed that Jobs asked for no control over the book's content, and that he had wished for the book to be released before he'd read it himself.
Steve Jobs was 56 when he succumbed to a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
