‘Steve Jobs’ by Walter Isaacson

Steve Jobs book cover

Janet Maslin, writing for The New York Times:

"Mr. Jobs promised not to look over Mr. Isaacson’s shoulder, and not to meddle with anything but the book’s cover."

(Via Business Insider.)

And it shows. The book's cover, at right, looks like nothing so much as an Apple product, or the box one came in. Right down to the Helvetica typeface.

Pre-orders have been selling like iPhones, too. Fitting.
