Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt to release business management guide

Refusing to share the secrets of how to run a company as successful as Google would be a pretty evil thing to do. So, in the spirit of the tech giant's "don't be evil" corporate motto, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt has announced he is writing a business management book based on his decade as CEO.

No Adult Supervision Required: How to Build Successful 21st Century Companies, is scheduled for release in autumn 2014, the AP reported.

While running Google from 2001 to 2011, Schmidt helped establish it as one of the world's leading Internet empires. With this book, he hopes to share tips on relevant business management in an increasingly online world.

Like in his previous book, The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business, Schmidt continues to write about the ever-growing influence of technology, connectivity, and the Internet in our lives.

Co-writing the guide is Jonathan Rosenberg, who served as Google's senior vice president of product management under Schmidt and was known as one of his "top lieutenants."

Although Rosenberg left the company in 2011, his experience building the teams behind Chrome and Android suggests he'll provide plenty of insight into what makes Google tick and how other businesses can learn from it.

Schmidt and Rosenberg are working with Publisher Business Plus, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, to bring the book to market next year.

Hopefully, one of those chapters does not focus on mobile security.

As noted by USA Today, Schmidt recently drew chuckles from the audience of a Gartner symposium when he suggested that Android was more secure than Apple's iOS.
