Illustration for article titled The Fake Steve Jobs Biography Sounds Pretty Special

Sure, you could wait for the official Steve Jobs biography to come out in November. Or—or!—you could pick up a copy of the best-selling (in Taiwan) Steve Jobs Gives 11 Advices To Teenager. Easy choice? Easiest choice.


The knock-off bio has sold over 4,000 copies at KingStone, a Taiwanese bookstore that has done right by us all. Translated by John Cage (not the composer except hopefully actually the composer, somehow?), the book has turned a nearly $40,000 profit despite being, uh fraudulent. You can purchase one here, though no assurances given as to how closely a site with five sparkling diamonds at the top of the page will guard your financial data. [MIC Gadget via TechCrunch]
