Steve Jobs biography to arrive earlier than expected

Walter Isaacson's book to launch this November

You'll be able to get your hands on the forthcoming Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson earlier than expected.

All Things Digital reports that the publication date for Steve Jobs: A Biography has been pulled forward to 21 November, meaning it will be out in time for Christmas.

The new date was confirmed by publisher Simon & Schuster, though initially the planned publication date was March 2012. Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk are still listing this date as the release date. The book has been available for pre-order since June.

The book had a change of title last month, having been previously known as iSteve: The Book of Jobs. Isaacson was reportedly unhappy with the title, which had apparently been decided upon by publicists rather than the author himself.

Isaacson's past biographies include Einstein: His Life and Universe and Benjamin Franklin: An American Life.
