What is a Blink?
A Blink is an explainer of a nonfiction book that takes the most important and memorable insights from the title and condenses each of them into key ideas of around 200-300 words.
Each Blink has an average of 7-8 key ideas, and together you can get the most powerful, useful, and impactful knowledge in around 15 minutes of audio or text.
Why does Blinkist focus on nonfiction rather than fiction?
Non-fiction is a bit like a table: a careful look reveals its main parts, how they fit together, and how each element contributes to the piece’s overall function. Writing a clear, outlined description of the table works in part due to its very nature.
Fiction, on the other hand, is teeming with subplots, ambience, and metaphor—it’s a lot more like a painting than a table. And how do you outline a painting?
What languages does Blinkist support?
Blinkist would like to expand to other languages in the future, but for now, they are focusing on English and German.

Who writes the Blinks?
Blinkist uses real writers to craft their Blinks and neither people nor Blinks are infallible. If you think something from the original book is missing from their selection of key insights, please, let Blinkist know!
How does Blinkist make sure that they cover everything?
Blinkist’s writers, editors, and field experts read and analyse the book, pull out the key insights, and polish the Blinks till they’re not just smart but also fun and easy to read. For an extra layer of security, Blinkist reviews and fact-checks every Blink.
What about copyrights? Is Blinkist stealing from authors?
Blinkist’s 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. This is why Blinkist offers an easy way for customers to find, buy and listen to the full audiobook.
