What Students Say

Library at your fingertips!

This is an incredible resource not just for students, but for everyone! The advice of hundreds of authors is a click away. Super useful and convenient!

Better than you think!

This honestly sounds too good to be true but works great Especially for those days when you really need to maximize your time, this is a great place to start!

Value to Your Time

We all want to unlock the secrets to success and abundance but, who has time to comb through all of those pages to find them? Blinkist understands that as busy college students, we value our time as much as we value knowledge and wisdom. Get the best of both worlds!


As an avid reader sometimes it’s difficult choosing which books to try next. Blinkist’s book summaries are so helpful, thorough, and amazing!


Free knowledge is always great, this thing really just helps motivate me to learn more.

Used in the morning

I usually use it in the morning, because first, it helps me get distracted with all the normal stuff I do in the morning, and second, it helps me learn a little that day and makes me ready to learn more.

It works!

It has access to non-fiction books to help you learn/grow. If you're not an avid reader or someone who likes to read, I'd suggest this. If you do read or have a Kindle then skip out.


I really love reading, so this was great for me!

Good short-cut for reading

I think this is a great time-saver and is very helpful when you need a quick summary! I prefer actually reading hardcover copies and like to set apart time to read personally, but not everyone is like this. So for those who just want the quick summary, this is the tool to use!


It has great books that are very effective in communicating the topics it discusses.

Very Helpful!

I normally enjoy reading in full, but I tried Blinkist and was not disappointed. I can see it being very useful for finding important summaries and key points!

Time-saving app

Reading is a very therapeutic thing for me, so I prefer reading a full book compared to just having highlights of key ideas. However, my colleague got me to try Blinkist. I can see how it'll work great for people who want to learn key concepts in a short amount of time.


Great app to get quick summaries. It's helpful for busy college students that need to use their time wisely.


A very productive learning tool and it's great for summaries. if your not into reading they have audiobooks too!


I´m really into books and Blinkist is a good source that you can use to read interesting books. From Blinkist, when you read the book you can quickly find the gist of the book. It´s better to really understand the purpose of the books and the lesson that it holds.

Super Productive!

You are not going to find a better place to get summaries. If you need to read a book and have no time or if you already read it and want a video to review, this is the place for you. Strongly recommend it!

Great tool!

It's a really productive tool that helps a lot especially if you're looking for a summary. Super useful as a young reader! I definitely recommend!

Great product!

As a young reader, this product helps me pick my favorite books to read online!

Very good

Blinkist gets you to the main points of a book and has a great library of books if you prefer audiobooks, Blinkist also provides that function.

Excellent Resource

This is a great way to get all your help in one place and to fulfill all your needs by helping and making college decisions easier and faster. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to make life easier.

Great!! Super informative!

In my experience with Blinkist, I have gained insights that I otherwise would not have to time to learn. The app has short 'blinks' of the most poignant topics of any nonfiction book you can think of. It is especially great with leadership books.

Amazing Reading Resource

This is an amazing resource for getting the highlights behind what your reading. It separates what’s essential to what’s not essential. This is a must have for any who reads any book.

Great product!

This is an excellent way to maximize time! It only takes about 15 minutes to read through passages and fantastic summaries.

Good tool

It's a really productive tool that helps a lot especially if you're looking for a summary or snippets. I'd definitely recommend it!

A useful tool

Especially for anyone just looking for a summarization of the main points of a book!

Great for listening to the main points of a book

The short snippets summarizing the main points of a book are great for people who want to get the most information for the least amount of time. The audio and text are both great quality.

A Great Tool

Blinkist is an incredible productivity tool that I use almost on a regular basis. I would strongly recommend trying it out, especially for students.

I like it and I think its an excellent app for readers.

I personally like Blinklist because it keeps you off Netflix and it has tons of great points. There’s been about one book I want to buy so that I can read in more detail. Although most business books are repetitive and go over the book's best points. But besides that, I definitely recommend the app.

Great resource

Blinkist helps me when doing research since it allows me to narrow down my search and make it way more efficient.


I love Blinkist because it allows you to get the full understanding of what kind of books you like.

Love the concept!

I think the concept is so neat. I just did the free daily access version, and what I love is that you can feel like you have hit all the high h points of the book without the stuff that may hold you back! IT is helpful if you want to know more in a really short time. With the info you get from each selection you are definitely able to make informed decisions about wanting to read more.

Genius product!

This is such a great and useful app! Reading is a great thing to do to enrich one's mind, however, it can be hard to find the time sometimes. With this app, you can be doing anything you want and listen to a book while remaining productive!
