Our Blinks distill the main ideas and most important concepts from non-fiction books, but they are new, original works of their own, written in our Blinkist style, voice, and format. We work with publishing partners to select the most compelling ideas to blink, introducing customers to new books and authors they might otherwise miss. We also share revenue with those partners, so that they - and authors - can benefit financially from our engaged customers.
Our Blinks are concise and compelling, but necessarily limited by their format. Think of them as a robust movie trailer for books. Full length books offer more in-depth discussion, rich examples, references, and explanations that Blinks can’t fit. Which is why we offer an easy way for customers to find, buy and listen to the full audiobook on Blinkist.
We hope that by giving people an easy way to discover new knowledge, Blinkist will bring authors more readers and get more great books noticed and read - increasing authors’ income along the way. We believe that ideas are important and delightful, and can make your mind healthier and happier, too. Just as a taste of a new topic might get you curious about a whole new area of study, and that one great sentence can offer you new perspectives, enticing you to read more, not less.
