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 television 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 television shows, including Splash, 24, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Arrested Development, 8 Mile, J. Edgar, Empire, 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I love Brian Grazer’s soulful message about the power of curiosity. He inspires, entertains, and shows how we can use curiosity to tap into the power of wonder and wisdom we are all born with.”

    Arianna Huffington, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • A Curious Mind is not a classic autobiography but a rumination on how one trait, curiosity, reinforced by a readiness to pay attention and then to act, has forged such a remarkable career…It’s like spending a couple of hours in the bar of a Hollywood hotel with an amusing raconteur.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “If you feel stuck in your business or career, or if your company is failing to stay ahead of its competition, perhaps Grazer’s method of ‘curiosity conversations’ might provide the spark you need to ignite your best ideas.”


  • “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…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.”
