Impetus to publish ": Co-founder of Apple" came from the success of Bluewater's comic book biography of Zuckerberg, the publisher said.

The book, the first authorized biography of the technology visionary behind the Macintosh computer, the iPod, the iPhone and iPad, is to be released on March 6, 2012.
