The authorized biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson was to debut in November. But due the death of Steve Jobs’ the biography is now set for the release for Monday. The biography of Steve Jobs will include every thing about Steve Jobs including his life at Apple, his resignation letter and why he wore Turtle-Neck T-Shirt. The biography will consist of almost 656 pages.
The most significant revelations to become public ahead of the Book’s launch on Sunday, when an interview with Isaacson airs on the CBS show 60 minutes. CBS has shown a breif preview of 60 Minutes with Isaacson, in which a really shocking and heart throbbing statement came to light. It was the first and last wrong decision made by Steve Jobs’ in his life regarding his health.
The sad revelation is from the book of Steve Jobs is that,” Steve Jobs delayed the first operation of his pancreatic cancer for 9 months, back in 2004, ignoring the keen request of his Friends And Family regarding the operation.”
According Isaacson, speaking to 60 minutes:
“I’ve asked [Jobs why he didn't get an operation then] and he said, ‘I didn’t want my body to be opened…I didn’t want to be violated in that way,’” Isaacson recalls. So he waited nine months, while his wife and others urged him to do it, before getting the operation, reveals Isaacson. Asked by [60 Minutes correspondent Steve] Kroft how such an intelligent man could make such a seemingly stupid decision, Isaacson replies, “I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don’t want something to exist, you can have magical thinking…we talked about this a lot,” he tells Kroft. “He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it….I think he felt he should have been operated on sooner.”
By the time Steve Jobs realized that he should be operated, it was too late for him because the cancer had spread to the surrounding tissues and caused major damage to the body. If Steve would had agreed to operate the cancer, the time it was detected, so it would had been better for him and the cancer could have been cured.
But one wrong decision made Steve Jobs to suffer for life. No doubt he was suffering with the cancer and a very bad health, the best thing was that he never gave up for his work. He fought with the life and death and made his dreams come true. He also worked on the Apple’s next Generation Product till his last day of life.
The segment of 60 Minutes on Isaacson’s book will be aired on 7PM ET, this Sunday.
