What others are saying about us:
"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
