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.....

Stories were mildly interesting and loosely tied to the apparent message - curiosity gets you places.
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.
From an education perspective it sparked my thinking. He committed to all that he discussed. Some self promotion, but to be expected.
A great quick read, to get your thinking.
I've been teaching curiosity as one of the 6 qualities that distinguish aspiring writers from published authors for a few years now which is why I've was drawn to the title of this book. I loved the way the author thinks about curiosity and the questioning mind - I took notes and laughed out loud several times. A stunning book I'll recommend to all my students.
