The WSJ reports that Steve Jobs and biographer Walter Isaacson knew that he was dying weeks before the end.
According to a person familiar with the matter, Isaacson last interviewed Jobs four weeks ago, right before, and right after he stepped down from his post as the CEO of Apple.In the wake of Jobs’ death, his biography has catapulted to the top of the Best Sellers list at Amazon. Also the “Movers and Shakers” top two is the bio and I, Steve: Steve Jobs in his own words.
Jobs indicated at that time that he knew he was going to die soon. The scene will appear at the end of the book.
Perhaps ironically (because I read almost everything on an iPad now), this might be the last hard cover book I ever buy.
