Publisher Simon & Schuster announced Sunday that it will release a biography surrounding Steve Jobs’ life, with the Apple CEO’s full participation. According to the Associated Press, the book, titled iSteve: The Book of Jobs, will be written by Walter Isaacson and released in 2012. (Isaacson has previously written biographies on Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.) The author has been working on the Jobs biography since 2009, and has had access to the CEO’s friends and family. Jobs has suffered numerous health setbacks over the years – in January, he announced he would take a leave of absence (his third) from Apple before returning to introduce the iPad 2 last month.
