Publisher's Summary

From Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer and acclaimed business journalist Charles Fishman comes a 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 audiobook - and its lessons on the power of curiosity - can change your life.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

An Interesting Read

From an education perspective it sparked my thinking. He committed to all that he discussed. Some self promotion, but to be expected.
A great quick read, to get your thinking.

Enchanting and inspiring

I've been teaching curiosity as one of the 6 qualities that distinguish aspiring writers from published authors for a few years now which is why I've was drawn to the title of this book. I loved the way the author thinks about curiosity and the questioning mind - I took notes and laughed out loud several times. A stunning book I'll recommend to all my students.
