Have you ever wished that you could read faster, and absorb information in less time? There may be a solution, and it doesn’t actually involve reading faster. Rather, you can get important information much faster by just reading condensed books, and that’s the idea of Blinkist. For those who are not familiar with it, Blinkist summarizes books into different “blinks” so that you can read a thick, several hundred page book within a few hours. Much easier!
Are Blinkist’s summaries accurate? Well, yes, but there are some drawbacks to reading their books over the originals. There’s been some criticism over their summaries, and many say that it’s an extremely shallow experience compared to reading the actual book.
For those who like the idea of Blinkist, the good news is that it’s SUPER CHEAP! Nothing to lose by giving it a shot 🙂
