Peek into the “curiosity conversations” that inspired Brian Grazer 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. This book offers a blueprint for how we can awaken our own curiosity and use it as a superpower in our lives.
