Steve Jobs' biographer talks about his battle with cancer

The genius of Apple founder Steve Jobs lay in his ability to connect poetry to technology, Steve Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson has said.

Isaacson's book Steve Jobs, released on Monday, is based on over 40 interviews, some of which took place in the Apple co-founder's living room.

Speaking to Good Morning America, Mr Isaacson said Jobs intended to wait six months after publication before reading the book.

Instead he died on 5 October, aged 56, after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
