From Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer and acclaimed business journalist Charles Fishman comes the New York Times bestselling, brilliantly entertaining peek into the weekly "curiosity conversations" that have inspired Grazer to create some of America's favorite and iconic movies and television shows-from 24 to A Beautiful Mind. For decades, film and TV producer Brian Grazer has scheduled a weekly "curiosity conversation" with an accomplished stranger. From scientists to spies, and adventurers to business leaders, Grazer has met with anyone willing to answer his questions for a few hours. These informal discussions sparked the creative inspiration behind many of Grazer's movies and TV shows, including Splash, 24, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Arrested Development, 8 Mile, J. Edgar, and many others. A Curious Mind is a brilliantly entertaining, fascinating, and inspiring homage to the power of inquisitiveness and the ways in which it deepens and improves us. Whether you're looking to improve your management style at work or you want to become a better romantic partner, this book-and its lessons on the power of curiosity-can change your life.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Norbert Butz's performance, full of clarity and assertive interest in his material, makes him sound a lot like the fast-talking, quick-thinking author, a powerful Hollywood producer who's achieved a lot and wants to share his insights. Glazer uses entertaining stories to make the case that curiosity is a habit that can be cultivated, though it's often stifled in our culture and in many of our institutions. He says that while curiosity opens doors, it can also be disruptive because it challenges authority and upends bureaucratic silos. More of a memoir than a how-to, this is a fascinating portrait of a colorful man and his approach to the world--a book with a unique type of energy that Butz captures fully.
