Steve Jobs biography arriving Oct. 24

Steve Jobs biography now available via iBooks, Kindle

Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Steve Jobs, is now available from both Amazon's Kindle Store and Apple's own iBookstore. Isaacson, who appeared earlier today on CBS' 60 Minutes, had unprecedented access to Jobs, his family, friends, colleagues, and rivals, and the book strives to show Jobs not only as one of the most innovative and influential people of his time, but also as a human, a family man, and more.

If you pre-ordered it, download and enjoy. If you haven't yet, here are the links.

I'm having problems with the ebook under iBook, the fonts are screwed up for chapter headers and other places, and all of the actual chapter text is missing!

I think price will still be a great factor .If Window8 tbaelt is more than US$200 more expensive than iPad, it may not be as competitive.But for notebook PC . Anyway we have to use Windows, and Microsoft will definitely give up supporting Windows7 someday.. 1 3

Why no link to the BN version?

how to buy it outside US ? :D

Paul S says:

Similar problem. Ordered on my IMAC. Can't get it on my IPAD. Actually never downloaded to IMAC either. Apple refunded my money. I think I'll order it on my IPAD. Looks like it's best to order it on the device you plan to read it on. Seems you need to download the ibook app, set download to always on. I am thinking about buying a $ 79 Kindle. Those owners don't seem to have any trouble.

I downloaded his bio to my iPad2 and iPhone 4s, but no images are showing up on either. Any hints on what's happening or how to correct this?

KekoaLani says:

I finally realized I hadn't updated my iBooks app due to IOS5!!!!

Is there a way to purchase this on iBooks outside the US?

handy tip i discovered re: cctoatns duplication once icloud is checked is to click on the red bookmark label on the address book. it should turn the page, then select to only show icloud cctoatns. then you dont need to delete the mac cctoatns.

You really make it apaepr really easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing that I think I might never understand. It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I'm taking a look forward to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hold of it!
