Isaacson Considering Expanding Steve Jobs Biography?



At 630 pages, Steve Jobs’ biography is no light read. However, Isaacson has said that he may expand the book. That is according to a Fortune report.

He says that he considers this a first or second draft, but not a final draft of the book. Here’s what Isaacson had to say:

The author discussed potential plans for expanding the already 630-page book in the future. One possibility is doing an extensively annotated version. Another is writing an addendum that addresses the period surrounding Jobs’ death. Fleshing out the details seems like a logical next step, since Isaacson believes the Apple CEO’s story will be told for decades or a century to come. “This is the first or second draft,” he said, referring to his book’s role in documenting Jobs’ life. “It’s not the final draft.”

As we know, the book was pushed from a release date of early 2012 to late 2011. Then, following Steve Jobs’ passing, it was pushed up several months. Perhaps it wasn’t complete, and there was pressure from the publisher to get it out soon after Steve had died. We don’t know for sure, but we’ll see what happens.
