    Like it*****

    Great app!! I was using audible trying to find audiobooks, it was a lot more difficult to find books I enjoyed. I ended up only finishing about 1/3 of the books because they were not ringing home. Then they had there return policy where after about 8 audible books returned online, they would make you call them to refund more. So ended up not, And became inconvenient to experiment with buying a audio book. So far this app has been helpful with not having to commit to buying a book, while also enjoying listening only 15 mins of the a books summary. Its definitely helping me enjoy my day at work doing montenous things, at least now I’m activating my brain while being guided through amazing and valuable knowledge from there recommendations list, Thanks this app. P.s not trying to blast audible they have a good thing goin on, now if I really like a summary of one of the books I can go buy it from them, but finding more than enough content on with this app!! so that won’t be for awhile*

    Really. Darn. Good.

    This is really one of the few apps that really gets things right. Sure, $15/month is expensive for subscription services these days, but if you subscribe for a year, it’s <$9/month. And for that, you get access to a ton of knowledge put together by professional notetakers who do a great job skipping the bs without making the reading dry or not worth reading. And I’m exaggerating, they’re not notes either, it’s a short version of the book with only the important parts that make you sound smart in cocktail parties... oh and real life too. What I love most about this is that you can easily take notes on the notes. Like... you can sync it up with your Evernote account and they beautifully manage your notes. You can also send content directly to your kindle which I particularity enjoy reading on. My only complaint is that highlighting isn’t as easy on the iPad app as the kindle app. You have to select the text first and then click “highlight” whereas in the kindle app you put your finger down for a sec before sliding your finger over text. Though now that I think about it both are two step processes. If it’s possible to make highlighting easier... do it. I love highlighting. Thanks a lot guys. You did a darn good job with this one and you got me to subscribe on the first day without cancelling.

    The best app I've ever downloaded

    I've had this app for just a few weeks. In that time I've read nearly 40 blinks, and I can tell you without a doubt it is THE BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT!!!!! I've learned numerous amounts of information in various different subjects: science, psychology, self help/ improvement, and read the biographies of countless individuals. I truly feel in these last few weeks I've become wiser and learned more about the world than I probably have in the last 2 years (I'm an 18 year old college undergrad just for context). It's changed the way I approach my life too. I feel more secure, happy, and go about life with a much more positive and confident attitude. I reflect on myself more, actively seeking new experiences and love meeting new people. It's just made me so happy in life. Endless thanks to all the people who made this app. It's the best thing I've ever paid for!!!

    Great App for Discovering New Books

    5-Stars because the app works well and it does what it advertises. Also, customer support helped me resolve my hardware issue I was having (not due to their fault). Review: 15 minutes is too short of summary for an entire book, but it gives you a good idea about whether that book is an ideal read for you or not. I think I may prefer a 1-3 hour summary. A 1-3 hour “summary” may be short enough to listen in a day or two during commutes, but long enough to gain a better understanding about the true contents of the book. I switched over to audible because for me, I’d rather listening to a full book for 10 hours, than listen to a 15 minute synopsis.

    Why We Love

    I am a psychotherapist with a 25+ year career. I am constantly seeking tools for myself and my clients as we continue on our personal growth journey. I stumbled across this app and purchased it immediately after perusing it’s content. I have recently divorced after 31 years, 4 kids, and 1 granddaughter of being married to a Narcissist. I am an empath and even though I am a trained and licensed clinician, I have struggled to understand how I could have possibly have stayed in such an unhealthy union for so long. As I prepare to share my story in whatever format that will be, I must continue my life long journey of learning and this app is PERFECTION! It will continue to empower my daily commitment to become my BEST self!
