Apple fans won’t have to wait as long to read the authorized story of Steve Jobs’ life.

Responding to a rush of interest following Wednesday’s death of the Apple co-founder, Simon & Schuster announced it’s moving up the publication date of its Steve Jobs biography from November 21 to October 24.

The book by Walter Isaacson, titled simply, “Steve Jobs,” rocketed from 437 to No. 1 on Amazon’s bestseller list — a spike of 43,000% — in the hours after Jobs’ death, thanks to pre-orders. It was No. 3 Thursday on Barnes & Noble’s website, and also topped the list of bestselling books in Apple’s own iTunes store.

In its blurb for the book, Simon & Schuster promises “a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.”
