Steve Jobs Bio becomes Amazon book of the year

Walter’s Isaacson’s Steve Jobs Biography Is Amazon’s Best-Selling Book Of 2011

Having rocketed to the top of the book charts in October following the death of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson’s authorized Steve Jobs biography has quickly become Amazon’s best-selling book of 2011.

The company predicted the book would become a best-seller back in October, when an Amazon spokeswoman told Reuters:

The way things are trending, it could very likely be our top-selling book of the year.

It’s a pretty impressive achievement when you consider that the title has only been available since late October. However, just a month after its debut, the book had already risen to the second spot on Amazon’s chart, and looked destined to be a huge success.
