Publisher Simon & Schuster have announced that an official biography of Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be published in early 2012.

The biography will be called 'iSteve: The Book of Jobs' is being penned by Walter Isaacson, who's previous titles include 'Einstein: His Life and Universe', 'Benjamin Franklin: An American Life' and 'Kissinger: A Biography.'

"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."

I'm sure it will be a fascinating read, although given that it is an official biography, and that Jobs is well known for his 'reality distortion field,' I wonder how accurate a picture we'll get of Jobs.
