Mr. Isaacson has a history of writing quality biographies and a reputation for his unbiased approach towards his subjects including Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. He also served as a top executive at Time Magazine and CNN, and is currently the CEO of the nonpatisan educational and policy studies organization the Apsen Institute.
“Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of revolutionary genius,” commented Simon & Schuster publisher Jonathan Karp.
Mr. Jobs and Mr. Isaacson aren’t commenting on the biography, which fits with the CEO’s usual private stance on his life. Come early 2012, however, the public will finally be able to look behind that curtain and get a new glimpse into Mr. Jobs’s life.
