Blinkist - Skip The Reading, Keep The Knowledge
Updated: Mar 6
Books are some of the best companions one can have in life. Habitual book reading can substantially boost your cognitive power and help you gain abundant knowledge on a plethora of historical, financial, and geopolitical aspects. Experts also believe that book reading eases your mental anxiety, builds up your empathy, improves your vocabulary, prevents dementia or other age-related changes, and above all, helps you enjoy a good night’s sleep.
But really… who’s got time for that?
