Main Question or Discussion Point

I am trying to find some nice explanatory books about cosmological perturbation theory. I looked at Longair, Peacock, and Liddle. Even their level is nice, it seems to me that they are explaining things in a bit complicated way. Is there a nice textbook, articles, lecture notes that you guys can recommend.

Thanks

I also think you are in way over your head trying to study cosmology without having the prerequisites down cold
you are right yes,
This is why you are not understanding. You need to get your foundations solid. Nobody is going to write a book on cosmology for people without the background.
