#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.

★作者於Ted演講「How to Value People Over Profits」:

★ 作者於美國新聞網MSNBC為本書接受訪談:









1.      誠實(非常重視道德):將人置於利潤之上、重視價值、工匠、品質、真實、正質。往往發生在企業建立之初,如1940年的福特。

2.      效率(令人滿意的道德程度):同時重視人與利潤、追求量、生產線、委外、大量生產、講求速度。企業成型後,開始要起飛之時,如1954年的福特。

3.      欺騙(不重道德):重視利潤勝於人、貪婪、短缺、裁員。如1971年的福特。

4.      懺悔:我們目前所處的境地、革命性的舉動、透明、揭開謊言、重現價值的重要。如2009年的福特。
