An authorized biography of Steve Jobs was high on best-seller lists within hours of Apple’s announcement of his death. And publisher Simon & Schuster announced Thursday that the release date has been moved up from Nov. 21 to Oct. 24.

As of early Thursday morning, Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs was No. 1 on Amazon.com and No. 3 on Barnes & Noble.com. Fittingly, the book also tops Apple’s own list: the iTunes books best-seller list.

Isaacson’s book includes extensive interviews with the Apple co-founder, who rarely discussed his private life. Isaacson has written best-selling biographies of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.

Jobs died Wednesday at age 56 after a long battle with cancer.
