  • Great way to read and retain more

    I love that this breaks content up into manageable chunks. It takes the work out of speed reading for you! This is perfect for non-fiction writing because most books simply repeat information in different ways.
  • Why We Love

    I am a psychotherapist with a 25+ year career. I am constantly seeking tools for myself and my clients as we continue on our personal growth journey. I stumbled across this app and purchased it immediately after perusing it’s content. I have recently divorced after 31 years, 4 kids, and 1 granddaughter of being married to a Narcissist. I am an empath and even though I am a trained and licensed clinician, I have struggled to understand how I could have possibly have stayed in such an unhealthy union for so long. As I prepare to share my story in whatever format that will be, I must continue my life long journey of learning and this app is PERFECTION! It will continue to empower my daily commitment to become my BEST self!
  • Leftist Propaganda

    By Brian Hecklemeyer
    Blinkist is great if you enjoy reading reviews of such classic non-fiction works as Hillary Clinton’s communications director making excuses for Hillary’s electoral loss (spoiler alert: if you didn’t vote for Hillary you’re a misogynist!). In fact, most of the free daily blinks have devolved into social justice warrior talking points. If you need to be updated on a particular leftist cause célèbre, look no further! But garbage content for anyone with a capacity for independent thought

    App crashes after every section in story. Was really looking forward to signing up but it’s not worth me even trying since the app doesn’t work.

    If you’re like me, you’re so busy that it’s hard to devote time to reading the latest and greatest that you keep hearing about. If so, then Blinkist will serve you well. Excellent curated resources on a litany of topics, great user interface, and well written summaries. One of my favorite apps!
  • Love the App but Too Buggy

    Loving Blinkist! However, even though I have a iPhone X it often crashes as it moves from one blink to another. It really takes away from the learning experience. If this bug could be fixed I think I would give it five stars.
  • To busy to read, not with Blinkist!

    Blinkist is perfect for the fast paced executive who is traveling a lot and rarely has time to read. I used to read at least a dozen books each year. As I moved up in my career to management my time is stretched thin. With hundreds of non-fiction books to choose from, you can take in a dozen summaries a week easy! Listen or read on the road, in a plane, while waiting for a meeting, when getting ready in your hotel, or at bedtime! The choices are abundant and you can cover the main points in each book in 15-20 minutes!
