Isaacson May Expand Steve Jobs Biography

According to recent comments from Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson (reported by Fortune), he may not be completely finished with the book, and is considering a number of possible ways to expand the biography.

Possible expansions might include additional descriptions and materials surrounding Jobs’ death this October, and adding in annotations and footnotes to provide more information on the events described in the book.

The author discussed potential plans for expanding the already 630-page book in the future. One possibility is doing an extensively annotated version. Another is writing an addendum that addresses the period surrounding Jobs’ death. Fleshing out the details seems like a logical next step, since Isaacson believes the Apple (AAPL) CEO’s story will be told for decades or a century to come. “This is the first or second draft,” he said, referring to his book’s role in documenting Jobs’ life. “It’s not the final draft.”

Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs has already become Amazon’s best-selling book of 2011 (see the full list here), as well as topping Amazon’s “Most Wished For” list less than two months since its original release. I’d certainly welcome a revised and expanded version of the biography – it’d make a fantastic addition to my bookshelf.
