2016 Audie Award Finalist for Business/Personal Development #1 New York Times bestselling author and Oscar–winning producer Brian Grazer has written a brilliantly entertaining and eye-opening exploration of curiosity and the life-changing effects it can have on every person's life. From Academy Award–winning producer Brian Grazer, New York Times bestseller A Curious Mind offers a brilliant peek into the "curiosity conversations" that inspired him to create some of the world's most iconic movies and television shows. He shows how curiosity has been the "secret" that fueled his rise as one of Hollywood's leading producers and creative visionaries, and how all of us can channel its power to lead bigger and more rewarding lives. Grazer has spent most of his life exploring curiosity through what he terms "curiosity conversations" with some of the most interesting people in the world, including spies, royals, scientists, politicians, moguls, Nobel laureates, artists…anyone whose story might broaden his worldview. These discussions sparked the creative inspiration behind many of his movies and TV shows, including Splash, 24, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Arrested Development, 8 Mile, J. Edgar, Empire, and many others. A Curious Mind is not only a fascinating page-turner—it also offers a blueprint for how we can awaken our own curiosity and use it as a superpower in our lives. Whether you're looking to strengthen your management style at work, uncover a new source of creativity, or 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.
