    Love having something new curated for me to read every day. Previously i did the 75 hard challenge without this and it was a bit of a challenge. Looking forward to using the free summary per day to get my 10 nonfiction pages of reading in and becoming my best self! :D
  • Beware of the Free Trial! SCAM ALERT

    They charged my card on day 6 after they sent to me an email reminder that I had 2 days left of my free trial. Received an email Monday morning, Tuesday after work while in the chair getting a haircut, they charged my credit card $99. After emailing their customer service with two exchanges, they referred me to Apple to get a refund and it was “my fault”. 2 days is 2 days, not 1.5. Bad customer service experience, what else is a scam? Posting to all of the socials after this.!

    I mean the “aged” like me, almost. Really love the selections and quality. Topics well organized, like a great librarian in my phone, or pad, who’s read everything and knows me well. I’ve one complaint though, and it’s the cost. Things are tough on a fixed income, and I and other older folks would dearly love a discount. Recently I’ve had some tough months and had stopped most all my subscriptions. So when Blinkist came due and I’d missed it, the $99 for the year hit hard. If it had been $39 or even $69 I’d have not felt so crushed. Makes me seriously consider whether I should continue or not. A suggestion? Since I’ll turn the Great Seventy this December, how about a “gift” to the old, and somewhat wise, with a lifetime subscription for everyone upon their 69th birthday!? Of course I respect your needs and desire to find your own retirements, so maybe just a steep discount to say…$29? Since it’d be nice to imagine being so young, and rich, and healthy, again.

    I didn’t have the app for a while And thought my subscription ran out. I then received a bill for$100 and tried to cancel. No way to contact the company and they make you keep the entire year once you auto renewal.
  • Best investment ever

    Best investment I’ve ever made. I have learned so much from Blinkist that I never could have learned otherwise. I don’t have the time or patience to read or listen to a full book. Blinkist has given me the most important information I need to succeed professionally and personally in a format that I can actually use. It is priceless to anyone wanting to grow their knowledge base.

    Too many books, too little time? This brilliant app solves this problem in masterful fashion. Books are systematically analyzed and broken down by experts who do not interpret but methodically create a synopsis that faithfully reflects the contents of each book. Also, written bullet points help the listener to follow and recap the content. One week free trial, nothing to loose.
  • This app is frustrating! Can’t cancel free trial!

    I’ve followed instructions to cancel free trial but when I get to settings the links aren’t active. I can’t get to a place to cancel a trial I don’t want! There’s no way to contact someone.

    All the ideas presented in this article are great. It enhanced other ways to consider in a group discussion. It’s not only about ways of learning but cognitive styles, asking questions, staying on course with a goal. I have 3 things to add: a) author should also take into consideration the amount of time allowed for such discussion. If the leader is adept at skills mentioned in conducting such discussions, then the goal can be accomplished within a reasonable amount of time; b) in the “yes, but..” issue, one can appreciate the value of an idea by repeating or praising the value of the idea. The “but” could come in the form of a question, esp. when dealing with a person with a fragile ego; 3) questions can be loaded such as with assumptions, etc. So questions can be reworded by the leader in a way that can be heard by the group. Thanks for the article. I learned a lot from it, Ellen Y. Gomez
