Steve Jobs’ Biography Hits Bookstore Shelves Today

CUPERTINO, Calif. (CBS) – “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson, hits bookstore shelves on Monday.

The biography, for which Jobs granted more than three dozen interviews, is a look into the thoughts of a man who was intensely private, closely guarding details of his life.

Isaacson — speaking on CBS’s “60 Minutes” — says the Apple founder occasionally talked about spiritual matters.

“I remember sitting in his backyard, in his garden one day, and he started talking about God,” Isaacson said. “He said sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. (I) think it’s 50-50, maybe. But, ever since I’ve had cancer, I’ve been thinking about it more. And, I find myself believing a bit more … maybe it’s because I wanna believe in an afterlife. That when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear.”

Jobs died October 5th, at age 56, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

The book is published by Simon and Shuster, a division of CBS.
