Fans and critics alike may soon have access to the first authorized biography of Apple CEO Steve Jobs. According to the New York Times, former Time magazine editor Walter Isaacson has been selected to work with Jobs. Currently, neither Isaacson nor Jobs have confirmed the report, but the paper claims to have spoken to multiple individuals with inside knowledge of the project.

The last known published biography of Jobs was published in 2005 by John Wiley & Son and was of the (usual) unauthorized variety. The book, entitled iCon Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business, caught the ire of the ornery CEO, leading to removal of all John Wiley & Son books from Apple Store shelves. This included the Mac OS X Bible, and Mac OS X Illustrated.

The new book is in the early planning stages and will most likely be published by Simon & Schuster, the firm responsible for Isaacson’s other works. Jobs has already authorized a tour of his childhood home for the author, according to the report. [via]

If all this pans out as true you can rest assured that all Apple Fans will rush to their local bookstore to score a copy of this once-in-a-lifetime publication.
