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 and inspiring listen
An interesting and inspiring listen for sure, I would absolutely recommend. Love and agree with the argument that curiosity is hugely underrated or at least hugely neglected in too many way.
A tad self indulgent perhaps with lots of 'me, me, me' and 'I, I, I' but ultimately a strong reason for that, example.
I would recommend to most.

75% bragging and 30% ideas....a waste of time and money. Disappointed a professional with a good idea ,loads of experience and information to waste it on beating his chest !

The content is just not that good
What would have made A Curious Mind better?
Less description of interviewed characters and talk about the advantages of curiosity. More personal anecdotes from the interviewees and their success secrets.
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
What does Norbert Leo Butz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
You can listen to it while driving! Why else would anyone ever use audiobooks.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Yeah. It still gave a sneak peek into lives of some very successful people.
Any additional comments?
One thing I generally hate about books is how long they make simple concepts. I could probably summarize 100 pages of this book into "Curiosity is good," and that's probably all I will remember 1 month from now. So overall, I don't recommend this title and I kinda want a refund.....
