Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography of Steve Jobs has been a hot seller since its release on October 24th. According to The Bookseller, over 379,000 copies of the biography were sold in its first week of availability; better yet, that figure refers only to physical copies of the book sold in the United States. The biography is available in hardcover on Amazon and has matching digital versions for Kindle and iBooks.
Despite being on sale for just six days in the US, Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography is already the 18th bestselling book of the year. It sits one place ahead of John Grisham’s The Confession (Dell) and one place behind Rick Riordan’s The Son of Neptune (Hyperion) in the year-to-date BookScan US bestseller list.
