Walter’s Isaacson’s Steve Jobs Biography Is Amazon’s Best-Selling Book Of 2011

Walter’s Isaacson’s Steve Jobs Biography Is Amazon’s Best-Selling Book Of 2011Having rocketed to the top of the book charts in October following the death of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson’s authorized Steve Jobs biography has quickly become Amazon’s best-selling book of 2011.

The company predicted the book would become a best-seller back in October, when an Amazon spokeswoman told Reuters:

The way things are trending, it could very likely be our top-selling book of the year.

It’s a pretty impressive achievement when you consider the title has only been available since late October. However, just a month after its debut, the book had already risen to the second spot on Amazon’s chart, and seemed destined to be a huge success.

It’s no wonder, then, that Sony Pictures was keen to acquire the rights to make a Steve Jobs movie. Rumors have claimed that Aaron Sorkin, who wrote The Social Network, is “strongly considering” writing the film, while George Clooney or Noah Wyle could play the part of Steve. Wyle actually played Steve before in Pirates of Silicon Valley, which was released in 1999.
