Many of the top YouTuber experts have written books about being a successful YouTuber. These books from YouTube gurus can help you achieve success faster thanks to the information they share.
Books are one of the sources of information I used while growing my Youtube channels to a full time income. Learning from YouTube gurus like Tim Schmoyer, Sean Cannell, and Derral Eves helped me go from zero to earning $10,000 per month on YouTube.
You might not think of books as a helpful source of YouTube information. Won’t they be outdated? Why would video creators want to read instead of watch?

After reading many good and bad books about YouTube, I’ve discovered which ones are actually worth reading. The books listed below are the best books for YouTubers looking to grow and earn more money.
