Becoming Enlightened

Wonderful to have so many ideas, views, and knowledge at my fingertips. I find myself stopping the blinks and taking notes. These are books that I wouldn’t normally purchase because I could not afford them monetarily or time wise (not enough time to read). Probably the most important thing I have learned this past year plus has been to listen to people whose opinion differs from mine. I am learning why they have their beliefs. That they have them for many different reasons. You know we all are just trying to find meaning in our lives. We are trying to understand the world. Just like everyone else who has been alive. I also will purchase a book whose blinks I have listened to if I want to go deeper. Thank you for adding meaning to my life! I usually listen when I am doing something else like cleaning or cooking.

Great Content, Robotic Voices

4
I gladly pay the yearly fee for the wonderful content. But most blinks are spoken by robots, or by “people” with robotic voices. With the cost of this service, it should be a default to have human voices, or at least folks who can read without sounding like machines.

Blinkist makes learning easy.

5
Listening to Blinkist is an excellent way to learn facts and ideas not before thought of. One good thing about it is the ease of accessibility. I can have my coffee and learn something at the same time.

Love Blinkist! Perfect for when I have a 15min car ride and want to hear a detailed summary of an entire book. Plus, they offer such a wide array of books out there! 5 stars hands down
