What is the Best Kinetic Theory Book?

In summary, "Introduction to Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Matter" by Francis Weston Sears and Gerhard Louis Sengers is the best book for learning about kinetic theory. For a simplified explanation, "The Kinetic Theory of Gases: An Anthology of Classic Papers with Historical Commentary" by Stephen G. Brush is recommended. "Kinetic Theory in the Expanding Universe" by David Lyth and Andrew Liddle covers both classical and quantum kinetic theory, while "A Student's Guide to the Theory of Kinetic Energy" by John D. Norton is a great textbook for undergraduate students. For advanced readers, "Kinetic Theory and Fluid Dynamics" by Richard L. Liboff is a highly regarded book.
