"Blinkist offers a terrific service – great ideas distilled down to their very essence. For those of us who are deeply curious about new ideas on success, happiness, innovation, progress and more, it’s a great start." - Forbes

“Even if readers just use the summaries as quick shots of knowledge rather than as book discovery avenues, this could just mean they’re enriching otherwise lost time -- while driving, exercising, or doing chores -- rather than replacing real reading with the app” - The Huffington Post

Customer Reviews

Exactly what they promise

20 minute blinks of books. Most books lend themselves to this format. A few don't... Mostly which are shallow marketing books without substance anyway... So not blinkist's fault. Haven't really even bothered reading more than one blink... Since I mainly listen on my way to and from work. Love it. App didn't work after an os update once, they walked me through a quick fix. These guys get top ratings for cs and a brilliant solution. -bgs

Well done

Amazing amount of content and super impressive user friendliness. please don't get too fancy with reformatting the actual notes/blinks. The simplicity through lack of distractions is absolutely essential to have retention of the material which is the key to having retention of customers, and to continue delivering value. I'm sure you already know this, so I write in hopes to reinforce and expose your stellar efficacy :)

Simple and beautiful

I can't recommend this enough. So many non-fiction books are filled with fluff to fill pages. Blinkist cuts through the fluff and gets to the point. I save time, money, and learn a lot about a various topics.

Warning: this app has the side effect of making you much more interesting at dinner parties.
