  • I adore this app

    By Mariuscosmos
    I blinked more the 210books since purchased the app 2 yr ago. It helps me tap into the worlds wisdom in minutes. Yes, I still read full books, but there is plenty of knowledge that I acquire through my blinks. I often find books that have been recommended in my courses and I get an almost instant access to the main ideas of the books. And If I come across a book that needs to be read in details, then I purchase the book. I could not recommend this app more. Very, very useful and instrumental. Thank you!

    I love this is just opening up my mind to new things🖤
  • Just what I was looking for

    By Mat_cuz
    Many non-fiction literature is filled with fluff. This cuts through things like the authors life story, or an extended introduction selling me on the ideas in a book I already bought and am reading. Really impressed with the library of titles on Blinkist. That was my main concern before signing up.
  • Absolutely essential!!

    By jonzdude
    I was never one to read, I fact I read to go to sleep because my mind associates reading with a back burner activity. I feel like a totally millennial when I say, I’m too impatient. Just give my what I want with out all the fluff and painfully long, drawn out explanation. I’m truly apologize to those that do enjoy that. As I myself finding blissful delights in my passions, like in art and design. But when it comes to reading, I see the fundamental and overwhelming value of it, but as one that had been brought up in this hyper-informational generation, trying to take an essential sip from a firehose will just make me spit it out and avoid it altogether. That being said, I give this review because just as other tools help those be more productive. This tool gives me a glimpse/opportunity to find a love for a passion I didn’t initially have or desired. I do not go a day with out reading or listening to one of these densely packed, yet elegantly delivered blinks. I hate paying for apps just as much as the next person, but this is one I actually do not mind paying. I feel that I get more than my money’s worth. Thanks Blinkist!!
  • There is room for improvement!

    By Bjsjshsh
    The app is extremely beneficial, but i would also add that the books should be more diverse and also have books from other religions like Islam. It would also be nice to include successful African authors that might inspire more readers from Africa like myself.
  • Great tool.

    If your a busy person Blinkist is a must to keep you up on the latest books!
  • Blinkist is brilliant

    By CGermaine
    I love Blinkist and appreciate the way it shares the central understandings of each book while encouraging the reader to dig deeper.
  • Like the former “Cliff Notes” but better

    By queenieshobaby
    I absolutely love this app. I am one who purchases books, but skims through to find the important part. With this app, I can do the same thing but, the work is already done for me, I can listen to it, and I only pay the cost of one book per month- to read thousands of books. What’s even better?? I can copy and paste good parts of the blink and share. I love it! And I’m telling everyone to sign up!
