Steve Jobs biography arriving Oct. 24

Steve Jobs, the eponymous biography of Apple's late co-founder penned by Walter Isaacson, has been moved up and will now arrive on shelves real and virtual on Oct. 24. What's more:

According to a person familiar with the matter, Isaacson last interviewed Jobs four weeks ago, right before, and right after he stepped down from his post as the CEO of Apple. Jobs indicated at that time that he knew he was going to die soon. The scene will appear at the end of the book.

Needless to say, pre-orders are topping the charts.
