The newly issued best-selling biography of Steve Jobs, the charismatic head and icon of Apple and the global PC era, will be published in Vietnamese on December 5, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported.
The exclusive copyright to the biography "iSteve: The Book of Jobs," was purchased by local AlphaBooks publishing house, the paper said.
The book was written by Walter Isaacson, who has also authored books on Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
On November 5, the online bookstore at Alezaa.com will also release the book's e-version. The original book, published by Simon & Schuster, was published in US this month and has topped the best-selling lists at both Amazon and Barnes&Nobles.
The book was based on more than 40 interviews with Steve Jobs over a two-year period, as well as talks with more than a hundred friends, family members, colleagues and even rivals.
Jobs' sudden death on October 5 prompted the publisher to issue the book sooner than expected. The book will unveil some unknown stories about Jobs' hard struggle with cancer, his romantic affairs, his marriage with Laurence Powell and his Apple monarchy.
