Steve Jobs’ passing in early October saw pre-orders of his biography jump by over 41,000% on Amazon.com, and following the book’s eventual release on the 24th of October, it shifted almost 380,000 copies in the first week across the board in the US.

So it will probably come as little surprise that Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs has shot to the top of Amazon.com’s best-seller list for 2011, which really is a big achievement considering it has only been on the market for a little over one month.

We reported back in October that Sony Pictures is set to make a big-screen movie based on the biography, with George Clooney tipped to take the lead role.

Number 2 on the Amazon best-seller list for 2011 is Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back, which was first published in November 2010.
