Just a couple of weeks after his passing, a book about the already legendary Steve Jobs is a best seller.

The authorized biography of the Apple co-founder went on sale at bookstores on Monday- but was released Sunday on Apple's iBook online store and Amazon's Kindle. It's currently at the top of the charts on Amazon- which says it could very likely be the top selling book of the year.

Readers will learn that Jobs called his rival Bill Gates "unimaginative" and said he shamelessly ripped off other people's ideas.

The biography by Walter Isaacson also reveals Jobs refused potentially life-saving cancer surgery for nine months, tried various quirky diets as a teenager and his management style was not always well received.
