Thank you for the valuable information! How is Steinberg compared to Serre? I need to study the basics of representation theory before diving into the analytic number theory.

I don't know. I know nothing about your goals, your preferences, your background knowledge, etc. The books are clearly very different though. Serre is a graduate text and not an easy one at that. Steinberg is written with undergrads in mind.
