Steve Jobs Biography Tops Amazon’s Bestsellers

15th December 2011

Walter Isaacson's authorised biography of Steve Jobs has topped Amazon's bestseller chart for 2011.

The book, only launched in October, claimed first place beating Tina Fey's Bossypants.

"We chose Steve Jobs as one of the Top 10 best books of the year, and even though it was published in October, the sales have been phenomenal," said Amazon’s senior editor of books Chris Schluep.

Steve Jobs, published by Simon & Schuster, has already been considered as a film. Sony has already claimed the rights to adapt the book for cinema, and Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin is apparently in talks to write a screenplay for the project.
