Looking for Readings on Dark Matter

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am looking for introductions and reviews (papers or books) on the possible observation and the nature of dark matter. This book seems to be a good start, but I would be grateful for any other recommendations that are accessible to people with knowledge of physics at the undergraduate level. Thanks in advance.

I, too, am interested in books on dark matter at the advanced undergraduate to graduate level, and I am interested in what folks might post in this thread.

Two books: 1) "An Introduction to Particle Dark Matter" by Stefano Profumo,
https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Particle-Advanced-Textbooks-Physics/dp/1786340011/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&qid=1594044503&refinements=p_27:Stefano+Profumo&s=books&sr=1-1&text=Stefano+Profumo&tag=pfamazon01-20

2) "Yet Another Introduction to Dark Matter" by Martin Bauer and Tilman Plehn,
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07T18RDMH/?tag=pfamazon01-20

Another book, with which I am completely unfamiliar, is 3) "Dark Matter: An Introduction" by Debasish Majumdar,
https://www.amazon.com/Dark-Matter-Introduction-Debasish-Majumdar/dp/1466572116/ref=sr_1_133?Adv-Srch-Books-Submit.x=31&Adv-Srch-Books-Submit.y=10&dchild=1&qid=1594012486&refinements=p_28:dark+matter&s=books&sr=1-133&unfiltered=1&tag=pfamazon01-20

The author of 1) coauthored
https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.05610

2) is based on
https://arxiv.org/abs/1705.01987

1) and 2) might be at slightly too high a level, although the preface of 1) states "The level and natural audience for this book is the same as it was for my lectures (2012): advanced undergraduate and graduate physics or astronomy students."

Also, there are many lectures on YouTube on dark matter, e.g., this 2017 advanced series by Neal Weiner,

"What We Know and Don't Know about Dark Matter"


"Histories and Models of Dark Matter"


"Signals of Dark Matter"
