Blinkist Guides – Introducing the Newest Addition to Blinkist

If you’ve ever dreamed of having an expert whisper insider knowledge in your ear, this is your dream come true! A Guide isn’t just another article or podcast—it’s an expert-led deep dive into today’s top-tier topics: think leadership, communication, personal growth, and a buffet of other essentials.

The best part? Every juicy morsel of knowledge is hand-curated from a ragbag of sources: books, podcasts, and articles. And the cherry on top? Exclusivity:
