A paperback version of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs is going on sale September 10th, according to publisher Simon & Schuster. The new edition will differ little from previous digital and hardcover releases, mainly gaining a new afterword and a new cover. The latter is a photo by Norman Seeff shot in 1984, but with Jobs in the exact same pose as the previous cover, which used an Albert Watson portrait from 2006.
Walter Isaacson’s book was intended for 2012 publication, but was moved up to the fall of 2011 when it became clear that Jobs was extremely ill with cancer. Job died on Oct. 5, 2011; the book was published Oct. 24. Despite being on sale for scarcely more than two months, it became Amazon’s top-selling print book of the year.
Simon & Schuster has refused to give exact sales figures for the original book releases. The book sold 379,000 copies during its first week in the US, though, and topped Amazon’s bestsellers list for 2011. Jobs died October 5th that year.
