The Goods #8: Blinkist

This is a great app!! I cannot recommend it enough.

What is it?

Blinkist summarises books into short 15-min a reads, some have audio you can download for those offline moments like on the tube.

I’ve learnt quite a bit and grasped concepts of topics that I’m interested in but not had the time to read in full. I’ve even bought a few books from the Amazon links of the ones that really stuck out.

Why would you want it?

  • If you have a stack of book titles to get through.
  • If you just want to get to key points quickly.
  • If you want to preview whether or not a book is worth spending the time to read.
  • Or, you might simply want to explore new topics to see if they interest you.

So far, my library includes:

  • 7 Habits of high effective people
  • Who moved my cheese
  • Art of war
  • The power of positive thinking
  • A short history of nearly everything
  • Getting Things Done
  • Einstein
  • Steve Jobs
  • The 4-hour work week
  • Losing my Virginity, Richard Branson
  • …to name a few.

Definitely check it out and sign up for the free trial
