Blinkist - Smarter in 15 Minutes

By: on July 29, 2015

Blinkist: Digital CliffsNotes for nonfiction books that people will think you're really smart for having read. With this 1-year subscription to Blinkist Premium, you'll have access to over 1,000 books whose key points have been funneled into a series of "blinks". In other words, you'll be able to "read" 450-page mind benders on mirror neurons and get caught up on how to find your purpose in life in 15 minutes or less.

Blinkist books are all curated. By humans. The online collection, also available in audio formats, isn't just a stockpile of keyword searches mashed together by computer scans. Membership gives users free reign over 40 new titles each month, plus unlimited access to the archives. While reading, you'll be able to highlight and save snippets of text in case you want to memorize and regurgitate them at cocktail parties later. Blinkist also allows for library building and offline viewing, and if you prefer reading from your Kindle, you can also send your Blinkist books there.

A 1-year subscription to Blinkist Premium is available for 62% off its retail price for a limited time from the Dude Exclusives online store.

Note: the Dude Exclusives online store is hosted and managed by Stack Commerce, a third party not directly affiliated with DudeIWantThat.com. All order, customer service, and general inquiries should be submitted through the Dude Exclusives Customer Support page.
