Fortune Releases Steve Jobs History E-Book

A new e-book detailing the life of Steve Jobs and fortunes of Apple between 1983 and 2011, taken from the pages of Fortune magazine, has been released.

"All About Steve: The Story of Steve Jobs and Apple from the Pages of Fortune" is available now on Amazon for US$8.79 on the Kindle.

The book includes pieces by journalists Brent Schlender, Peter Elkind, and Adam Lashinsky, and chronicles many of the key moments in Apple's history, including the creation of the iPod and iTunes, the iPhone and the Apple Store.

It also includes a joint interview from 1991 with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

"Steve Jobs' legacy is clear: The most innovative business leader of our time, the man Fortune named CEO of the Decade in 2009. Now from the pages of Fortune comes an anthology of 17 classic stories spanning the years 1983 to 2011 about the cultural icon who revolutionized computing, telephones, movies, music, retailing, and product design," the book's description reads.

"The stories lay out in unparalleled detail the career of a man with relentless drive and a single underlying passion to carry out his vision of how all of us would use technology. All these stories are the product of deep reporting. In many cases Fortune's writers spent hours interviewing Jobs and delving into his mind. The result is a singular journalistic collection, which will leave you with a comprehensive picture of Steve Jobs and Apple, a picture that is complex in the making yet simple in its triumph."

An authorized biography of Jobs is also reportedly in the works.
