Top 6 Facebook Advertising Books 2021
Books give you the opportunity to learn the tried and true evergreen strategies to base your marketing efforts around. We've curated a list of the best Facebook Advertising Books for your 2022 reading list.

Note: This blog was updated in March 2022 with two new bonus titles.

As our society is moving deeper into the technological era many of the older forms of communication are dying out. Radio and Television engagement has fallen since the rise of the internet. Books, however, are very much still thriving.

It seems that as many people who move online for their social engagements, many more are stepping away from it and reverting to older less saturated media. A social media detox, if you will.

Books are seen nowadays as ‘pure’ forms of communication without advertisements and much less fake news (well, this depends on who you’re reading…). This is no doubt very attractive for people in the modern era of constant media bombardment.

Since things change so quickly in digital marketing and especially with Facebook Ads (hello iOS 14!), books can seem like they could go out of date pretty quickly. While that may be true for the detailed “how-to” guides, these books contain more high-level strategies and ways to think about making your campaigns which are certain to apply for years to come.

There is a wealth of information in many books, so let’s jump right in and find out which are the best Facebook advertising books.
