'Steve Jobs' is the top-selling book of 2011 on Amazon Walter Isaacson's biography of the recently deceased Steve Jobs rocketed to the top of Amazon's best-selling book list and stayed there.
The book was released in late October following the death of the former CEO and founder of Apple.

Amazon's list includes digital and print copies.

Perhaps more notably were the books that came in 4th and 9th, each of which was published through Amazon's excellent Kindle Direct Publishing and therefore did not have print editions.

Full list (via LAT):

1. "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson

2. "Bossypants" by Tina Fey

3. "A Stolen Life" by Jaycee Dugard

4. "The Mill River Recluse" by Darcie Chan

It's a great read and extremely well written. The pace is a good speed. Never really any boring parts so far. But I'm not surprised his biography could probably grab any reader.

"You are holding it wrong"...that is all I need to read about Steve Jobs.

OK, I know he's dead but who poses for a picture like that... Honestly?

Given my propensity to rant like Lee Ermey, three pages at a time & it being the holidays I respectfully decline to answer at this time.

I am not at all surprised. Seeing all the media hype in the US. Did not read it yet. I might get around to it.

Yeah.......nothing like reading about the person whom is noted as the "Einstein of the 21st century". What crap. He had a team of R&D'ers. Not like he invented anything except a few concepts from the beginning. Perhaps people will say that Jobs wrote this book in his afterlife and not by the apparent author. Phhooooey!

Jobs is dead, Apple is played out and boring and both should be put to rest.

This is what I would say

If you are writing a story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen
basically someone else wrote about your life and I can hardly care.

So Steve, I wish you say hi to the devil, greed kills.
