The first authorized Steve Jobs biography, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, has seen its release date move up from March 6, 2012 to November 21, 2011, and its covers shown off (above). In a private email to Fortune's Philip Elmer-Dewitt, Isaacson explained:

"The cover is the Albert Watson portrait taken for Fortune in 2009. The back is a Norman Seeff portrait of him in the lotus position holding the original Macintosh, which ran in Rolling Stone in January 1984. The title font is Helvetica. It will look as you see it, with no words on the back cover."

Isaacson further denied that the change in schedule had anything to do with Jobs' health, or anything other than the book being done, edited, and ready to go.
