Once upon a time there were four friends. They exchanged notes and book summaries throughout their school years, and aced their exams because of it. Flash forward to 2012 and they’d all gotten jobs and lives and had less time than ever to read. They decided there had to be a better way to learn every day and still keep up with their jobs. And just like that, Blinkist was born! Three years later we’ve blinked more than 1,000 titles of the world’s best nonfiction and packed them into key insight summaries you can read in fifteen minutes.
