A Curious 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, and “Arrested Development”, and many others. Whether you’re looking to improve your management style at work or you want to become a better romantic partner, his book — and its lessons on the power of curiosity — can change your life.
