“Blinkist has the perfect solution for people constantly on the move. Blinkist provides 2 -15 minute summaries of the classic best-selling to the newest non-fiction books to help professionals stay tuned and learn as they go!” - The Huffington Post

“There is no such thing as too much knowledge. If you would like to expand your horizons, but don’t have the time to read, Blinkist’s non-fiction book summaries are a speedy and convenient way of learning” - TheNextWeb

“[Blinkist] provides 15-minute written and audio takeaways from books on psychology, history, health, current affairs, and more. Titles like Thinking Fast and Slow, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and Walter Isaacson’s Einstein are condensed into manageable written and audio insights, so you can learn more in less time. The audio feature is an awesome way to dive into a book while folding laundry or cooking a meal.” - BuzzFeed


“What’s most impressive about Blinkist is that they have a large library of titles that they thoughtfully and very carefully summarize for you. It makes so much information feel more accessible while filtering out fluff that I may not have time to read. I find Blinkist to be a godsend.”

“I have been waiting for a way to read books in a faster, more effective way for years, searching apps, considering subscribing to Executive Book Summaries, but then being limited on the number of books I could read and Blinkist took all of the needs of our fast paced modern lives and simplified the book into an amazing product I can carry in the palm of my hands. I can read the most important principles of an entire book while eating lunch or while in the waiting room at the Dr. This app is amazing. A powerful idea whose time has finally come!”

“Blinkist is a game changer! I discovered so many new interests just by browsing this app. From leadership to management to marketing to books about self actualization: There are just so many things to explore and dive into. I could spend hours just browsing the library of summaries and immersing myself in this wonderous world of non-fiction.”
