No prizes for guessing what it’s called.

After much cajoling and convincing, I am sure, Steve Jobs has finally agreed to partake in an official biography. According to ABC, the book will be called ‘iSteve: The Book of Jobs’ and will be penned by Walter Isaccson. The book is due in the first quarter of 2012 and will be published by Simon & Schuster.

Isaccson, who is currently the CEO of Aspen Institute in Washington, already has a couple of best selling biographies under his belt, including Albert Einstein, Einstein: His Life and Universe, and Benjamin Franklin, Benjamin Franklin: An American Life.

The publisher of Simon & Schuster, Jonathan Karp, said in a statement “This is the perfect match of subject and author, and it is certain to be a landmark book about one of the world’s greatest innovators.,” “Just as he did with Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, Walter Isaacson is telling a unique story of revolutionary genius.”

Okay, one question Simon & Schuster: will there be a white cover edition?
