Steve Jobs Bio on Track to Become the Best-Selling Book of 2011 on Amazon

The official Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson went live on the iBookstore and Amazon last night, and the title hit shelves everywhere this morning.

Initial pre-orders of the bio ushered it to the top of the charts on Amazon, and after less than 24 hours of availability, the book is on track to become Amazon’s best-selling title of 2011.

An Amazon spokeswoman told Reuters:

“The way things are trending, it could very likely be our top-selling book of the year,” Amazon spokeswoman Brittany Turner said in a statement.

Turner did not say whether eBook versions of the biography are out-selling physical versions.

The bio is currently the top-selling title in the iBookstore as well.

Biographer Walter Isaacson was on 60 Minutes last night to talk about the book and his interactions with Jobs. The book is full of revelations about Jobs and the company he created.

We have an interview with Isaacson coming up soon. Stay tuned.
