Hachette Book Group is teaming with Bloomberg Businessweek to publish e-book editions of select special projects from the magazine. This collaboration will launch with the e-book release Steve Jobs 1955-2011 by Bloomberg Businessweek, which is drawn from Bloomberg Businessweek's October 10 issue that dealt with the life, work and achievements of the Apple founder.

Steve Jobs 1955-2011 is being released today at $3.99. Pieces are written by Steve Jurvetson, Eric Schmidt, John Sculley, Sean Wilsey and William Gibson, as well as Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Businessweek reporters and editors Jim Aley, Brad Stone and Peter Burrows.

According to HBG, the two companies “will look to create future e-books that will illuminate key moments in the world of business.”
