Steve Jobs: Read the Book, See the Movie

Book Business Sees a Bonanza in a Forthcoming Biography.  (The New York Times, 10/7/2011)

Excerpt:   It took only hours on Wednesday night for Walter Isaacson’s forthcoming biography of Steve Jobs to shoot up the best-seller list on, eventually moving from No. 384 to the No. 1 spot. On Thursday morning, a book buyer at Powell’s Books in Portland, Ore., quintupled its order of the book, to 500 copies. Simon & Schuster, the publisher, said it was accelerating the publication, moving the release date to Oct. 24 from Nov. 21.

Let the guessing games begin.
