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. and 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.
