Steve Jobs forthcoming biography titled simply “Steve Jobs” release date has been pushed up to Oct. 24, 2011, (about two-weeks from now). The book was penned with Jobs permission/interviews and written by notable biographer Walter Isaacson.

The biography is said to include Steve’s brutal honesty of his life and his work. Steve also included the book was written for his children and I quote from Steve: “I wanted my kids to know me,” he said. “I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”
