Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- CBS Corp.’s Simon & Schuster book-publishing unit moved up the release date of the biography of Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, who died yesterday.

The authorized biography by Walter Isaacson, titled “Steve Jobs,” will be released on Oct. 24, according to Adam Rothberg, a spokesman for Simon & Schuster. The publisher first intended to publish the book in February, later moved it up to late November and then decided on October after the iconic entrepreneur passed away yesterday.

The book is already the best-selling title on Inc. and number three on the Barnes & Noble Inc.’s website. It can be pre-ordered for $17.88 at both online retailers.

Isaacson, a former managing editor for Time magazine and currently the chief executive officer of the Aspen Institute, has written best-selling biographies of Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein.
