Knowledge in the Blink of an Eye

May 17, 2017

I just heard on a podcast - where else?! - an ad for "Blinkist", a service that allows you to choose from over 2k non-fiction titles to read or listen to a summary in just 15 minutes.  


It costs $4.99 month/$49.99 year which for a cheapskate like me seems a bit steep.  This seems like it could be a good idea for books that you are unsure of and want to get a better grasp before you spring for the whole thing or for some reason really need to cram. 



Trivia - now that's not something I thought of.  That bit about birds in San Francisco changing their pitch due to traffic was pretty interesting, right?!


I really hope it doesn't turn into headline-reading instead of actual reading.  You know, when you talk to someone and they say "oh, I read this great article about blobbidy bloop" but then it turns out they only thing they actually read was the headline!  And lest I sound like I'm on my high-horse, I sometimes only read the headlines too!


Will you try it?
