Love him or hate him, Steve Jobs is one of the few technology visionaries out there who is as iconic to the public eye as is the inventive products his company creates. The 54-year-old cancer-surviving billionaire entrepreneur certainly has an interesting story to tell, but to this date has rejected offers from anyone to write his life story.

Today is different, as Walter Isaacson has become the first author to receive Jobs's official blessing to write the first authorized Steve Jobs biography. This is according to an article in the New York Times.

Isaacson, a former managing editor at Time Magazine, has penned recent best-selling biographies about Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. Though Jobs's history is well-known and taught to business students across the world, he has never collaborated with anyone on an official telling of his personal life.

It has been over 30 years since Jobs founded his now-global Apple brand, with the Apple II computer.
