Steve Jobs biography on track to be most popular book of 2011

Steve Jobs biography is on track to be most popular book of 2011, quite a feat for a book that's only been out for 2 out of 12 months of the year.

Steve Jobs' recently released biography provides an unprecedented look into the man so often equated with Apple Inc. Over the past few days, the web has been aflutter with new and interesting tidbits that provide unique insight into Steve Jobs the man along with behind the scenes stories detailing the development of some of the most revolutionary products of our time.

Suffice it to say, Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography is a must-read not only for Apple fans, but even for anyone with a passing interest in Apple, entrepreneurship, or technology in general.

Following the death of Jobs, pre-orders for the biography shot up more than 41,000%.

And if that itself isn't enough to impress, Amazon recently said that the Steve Jobs biography is on track to become the most popular book of 2011. That's quite a feat for a book that will only have been out for 2 out of 12 months of the year.

"The way things are trending, it could very likely be our top selling book of the year," Amazon spokeswoman Brittany Turner said.

Since its release, "Steve Jobs" has been the top selling title both in physical and digital formats with no sign of it ceding the top spot anytime soon.
