In his new book, Face to Face: The Art of Human Connection, Grazer offers these suggestions and more for developing impactful social skills outside the online realm. He makes a case for real-life connections by recalling his own personal breakthroughs with aloof celebrities, like Eminem and Bill Gates. Face to Face follows A Curious Mind, Grazer’s 2015 bestseller on the power of inquisitiveness. Grazer has produced films and television shows, including Arrested Development, A Beautiful Mind and Friday Night Lights.

Today on AirTalk, host Larry Mantle talks with Grazer, up close and personal, on the significance of physical engagement.

Guest:

Brian Grazer, Oscar-winning film and television producer whose credits include “A Beautiful Mind,” “Apollo 13,”  and “Arrested Development”; author of the new book, “Face to Face: The Art Of Human Connections” (Simon & Schuster, 2019)
